Fred Tomah Large Eagle Basket

Fred Tomah is one of a handful of members of the Maliseet tribe currently weaving baskets. He began making utilitarian baskets with family members almost fifty years ago. Breaking away from traditional packs and other utilitarian baskets, he has developed a style of his own, incorporating traditional methods and designs, but adding his own aesthetic touches.

Tomah is known for weaving black and natural baskets with quatrefoil bottoms and stylized geometric designs. This large version of his eagle basket has the added touch of color; the turquoise eagle creates a stunning contrast with the black and natural ash colors.

Approximately 13 in. high x 13 in. wide.
