Some Sepik Baskets with different designs
When I was small, everyone use to talk about Sepik baskets. Whenever someone went to Wewak and came back, everyone will be pestering him to give them some of the baskets that he has brought back.
Sepik people are famous for these beautiful baskets that they weave from special reeds.
But they all have different styles. For the average Joe, we cant tell them apart, but they can and their explanation of these differences is both fascinating and complicated and i cant remember the differences to clear.
I am sharing some pictures of these beautiful baskets I collected in the hope that someone reading this post can explain the difference.
