Large Prestige Basket

Tutsi, Rwanda

Large Prestige Basket. Tutsi, Rwanda

Intended to be displayed in an elite Tutsi household, this unusually large prestige basket (agaseki) is an impressive visual emblem of status. Dense, thick fibre strands have been coil-sewn to produce the distinctive sculptural form of this basket, which comprises a typically Tutsi cone-shaped lid. Different tonal varieties of woven-together natural and dyed fibre strands create subtle, spiralling patterns.

Estimated Period: Pre-1950's

Ex Private Collection, Belgium
