Title:

Puerto Lara, Darien Rainforest, Panama.

Caption:

The Wounan communities in the Darien jungle are highly skilled basket weavers. The women in the community of Puerto Lara are especially renowned for their craftsmanship. The largest pieces represent an immense amount of work. This piece may take the artist nine months to complete and sell for $1500. For many families basket sales are the only source of income.
