Humphrey No. 125: ‘Another [square basket] different, from ditto [Friendly Isles].’
The basket is made of pandanus leaves with a cordage of plaited coconut fibre. The weaving at the quadrangular base consists of wide stripes. The leaves are split at the corners making the weaving of the sides much finer. Inken Köhler, Ulrike Rehr, Gundolf Krüger
