Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a superior basket, made by a Tarieng man. There are actually three baskets connected. Vertically it is woven of bamboo and horizontally woven of rattan. The square base is attached with a frame of four pieces of bamboo that has been braided with rattan on the frame and edge. There is a section of bamboo that connects the three parts, triangle-like. Each section has a variety of uses. The middle section is higher than the others which is for carriying it on the back. Its shape shows its ethnic identity.

History of the Object
This Basket was made by Mr. Bounnok, a farmer and basket weaver, who moved to live at Phasuam in 2007. At the suggestion of a villager, Mr. Bounnok stayed to help with the building of a house and to earn money. This basket took a month to stripe and scrap the rattan and it took a month to finish the whole basket.
