Why this is a
Masterpiece

It shows the interaction between the past and the present. Nowadays you can still find the same motifs.

History of the Object
The baskets are used by the Dayak in Kalimantan. They are carried as a bag on the back, like a rucksack. The buttons show us that foreigners had contact with these baskets earlier than originally thought.
