The first Ezekiel basket, see main gallery Ornate Ezekiel Basket (#2190), actually a basket within a basket inspired by the spiritual where Ezekiel saw a wheel in a wheel, the little wheel run by faith and the big wheel run by the grace of God. From this basket a whole series of baskets were designed.
This Ezekiel is in concept similar to the Italian Brad Basket (#300). Its size is about the same and has a wafer on each end of the basket. A band of 6 wafers on each side make it an Ezekiel. A top coil completes the basket.
