A visit to the Chihuly Museum that opened in the Seattle City Center in 2012 is well-worth a trip to Seattle. Each gallery had a central theme and some of the glass pots and baskets in one of the galleries are shown here. The Southwest Gallery was devoted to Native American cultures with one wall containing hundreds of colorful blankets. Another wall, part of which you can see on the left, showcases traditional baskets combined with Chihuly glass baskets. Part of an explanation in the gallery indicated that the artist noticed that many Indian baskets are not totally symmetrical in shape, often leaning to one side or another. Chihuly's baskets do the same thing.
