Fur and Feather Dream Catcher Spirit Basket Northern Plains Indians - Twisted vines make up the basic shape of the basket, then covered in fur and enhanced with beads, feathers, conchos and an arrowhead.
Size - about 14" high 14" wide and 7" across the bottom
Top of handle is wrapped in leather thongs and a woven sinew dream catcher is suspended in the circle.
The web of the dream-catcher has a black arrowhead, beads and a variety of feathers attached. The outside is decorated with silver star conchos, feathers and beads.
There is a rather large 3 corner hole (see photo of my fingers sticking through) on the left side of the basket if you look for it. The aging fur is fragile but I think it could be repaired/reinforced from the inside.
Research shows this to be the type of basket woven by members of the Northern Plains Indian tribes, primarily Ojibwe and Chippewa. It may have been made in the 1970s by notable Native-American basket weaver Brenda Lee.
