Blue Ceremonial Vessel / burial Urn

The vessel is made of abaca pulp dyed with pigments and layered with chalk pastels. The handmade paper scroll on the lid may be used to write a poem, a thought, a memory or a prayer. The braid used to fasten the lid to the base is hand woven. The rim on the lid is woven with sea grass and threads. There are turquoise chips sewn onto the surface of the vessel.
