The Fowler Museum''s collections include nearly eight hundred items made by the peoples inhabiting Luzon''s Cordillera, or central mountain range. Roughly one quarter of these are baskets or related items, such as trays, hats, and fish traps. Although other objects from this area have received much more attention from art historians, the ubiquitous basket perhaps best captures the unique way of life of the agricultural peoples of the Cordillera. This volume is illustrated with photographs of fifty baskets drawn from the Fowler collections, as well as numerous images--both historical and contemporary--baskets in daily use.

With essays by Florina H. Capistrano-Baker, Albert S. Bacdayan, B. Lynne Milgram, and Roy Hamilton.
