Zulu Beer Basket Illusion
2016 Size H: 11.5 in W: 6 in
In an Exhibition - On exhibit at Folk Arts Center, Asheville NC
This is in the style of the African Zulu beer baskets, although the pattern is my own. Made from pear, it stands about 11.5" tall including the lid and it's a little over 6" diameter. 13,600 little squares on the vessel and about 2000 on the lid. Painted black on the inside of the vessel and bottom of the lid. I left one row on the lid natural, otherwise there would be no wood showing anywhere.
