Product Description

Very fine weave Tohono O’odham yucca and Devil’s claw basket by Tohono O’odham artist Irene Antone. Circa 1990

Irene only uses plant materials harvested from her homeland, the Sonoran Desert. These include yucca, devil’s claw, and bear grass. Her techniques in making coiled baskets are traditional, but her designs are completely unique. She specialized in highly graphic, pictorial imagery, and has featured realistic images of panthers and semi-tractor trailers. She wove a basket featuring the traditional flute player, surrounded by musical notes forming a specific song.

She has exhibited throughout the country, as well as the British Museum and won awards at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market, Red Earth, Gallup Ceremonial, the O’odham Tash Rodeo and Fair, and the Santa Fe Indian Market.
