This finely crafted tightly woven basket was made by a Balinese Family on Lombok Island. The Frog carving is a spectacular figure that decorates the lid. Rattan or Malay Rotan, a wild palm vine, was used for it's basket structure. This basket has brown color. The exceptional frog carving has a distinct Balinese style. On Lombok Island, village houses have few cabinets or drawers so baskets of all types and sizes are created to hold valued trinkets, clothing, ceremonial items and gifts. In Balinese Culture the frog design symbolizes transformation. The frog starts it's life as a tadpole then changes to a creature that adapts to either land or water. It is representative of change and transformation on a spiritual level.
This basket has 2 feet carved on the bottom of the wood platform, so it's slightly elevated.
