This small basket is woven with different types of grasses including sea, chi’tapt (sharp or swamp), or toq-toq (three-corner). The basket was woven using a wrapped twining technique.
The grasses are coloured with synthetic aniline dye. The basket features motifs of two people (pink/red) in a boat (black), a seabird (?) (green), and a whale/fish (?) (purple). There are two rows of green weave around the base of the basket. The center of the lid is green weave with a single row of yellow inside, with an orange ring encircling the green portion, and a second orange ring is four rows out from the first orange ring. Along the edge of the lid, there are two rows of green weave.
The basket was likely created by a Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) or Makah maker.
