According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: The woman is working in a basketry hopper. This is a basket with no bottom that is adhered with asphaltum or pine tar pitch to a stone mortar. The basket catches the particles inside that are being broken up with the pestle.
