Carleton and I picked up one of these baskets in the Orinoco Delta on a trip around Venezuela (the little one in the middle). We bought it because some local Warao Indians made a special trip to see us specifically to ask us to buy it, who could say no to that? Our families saw the basket and thought we had a love affair with baskets and started gifting them to us, and they just piled up. But when I decided to try to recreate a little slice of the Ace Hotel Palm Springs in my backyard it was the perfect opportunity to put them to use. I couldn’t get any sort of screw to penetrate whatever exterior walls were built with in 1930 so I just hot glued them to the wall. They have totally stayed put. Seriously simple and I love looking at them.
