Plant (ieie, niu)
37 x 37 x 53.5 cm
Kauai, Hawaii, Polynesia
Hinai with cover made of twined ieie (Freycinetia arborea). The twining is tightly done using split ieie in a consistent twill over the entire surface. The cover is done in the same manner as the base. Niu, coconut (Cocos nucifera) cordage, used to suspend the hinai, is attached around the rim of the base. Both the base and cover taper at the rim. The finishing on the base's rim is done in an overlapping technique.
