#a82 :: Rattan pouch

May 5, 2008

ENLARGEThis came from Hawaii, thumb wrapped around a much more significant HLO that I’ll blog about later this week.

Someone – Hawaiian or Chinese, I’m left to assume, since there’s no maker’s mark, wove it together from strips of reed.

The top fits beautifully over the bottom – and resists casual attempts to pull it off: You really have to haul on it to get the halves apart.

It’s empty now – of the beautiful thing it once contained – but full of potential: what else could it hold? How safe will the contents be? Who should see them, and who must not? And when will I fill it? And why?
