Lustre Gallery is pleased to present the Wounaan Hösig Di Artworks by Panamá's Master Weavers. These hand woven baskets are of exceptional and museum quality and feature a range of geometric and pictoral designs. Lustre recently began showcasing these works in its permanent collection and is pleased to have Jennifer Kuyper here to discuss the creation of these artworks and their impact on a sustainable lifestyle for the Wounaan community living in the Darien rain forest. Each basket is a reflection of the Wounaan cultural heritage and takes the artist between nine months and two years to complete. Apres ski refreshments will be served.
