Description

A fine carving of a sleeping child nestled in a winnowing basket. The winnowing basket true to its function symbolized a desire for separating the good from the bad but it also served as a dust bin that symbolized a wish for gathering food and good fortune. In this case the winnowing basket “collects” a robust child sleeping peaceably and would have granted the wearer a wish for healthy and happy children. Mid 19thc. Dahlbergia
