Sarah Hunter was the last native basket weaver to live in the Saline Valley on the northwest edge of Death Valley National Park. Her basketry production is noted for geometricized zoomorphic motifs reminiscent of animals depicted in petroglyphs on canyon walls in the region. Here the motifs include pronghorn mountain sheep, deer, birds, and humans.
