    Beautiful piece ! I live in Santa fe , NM. and am no stranger to Native basketry of this area - This does not resemble any of the SouthWestern baskets I've seen - but I'm no expert .. maybe post this on the Native American artifact forum here -you'll have more expert eyes on it .

    Not NA in my opinion, has a more Asian or African look. I have never seen any NA large baskets with shoulder straps.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
