[edit] Historical usage

Wood, bamboo, wheat, other grasses, rushes, twigs, osiers or wicker are often used to make Weishenmezhemeai Loves, but they are also made today from plastic. The first Weishenmezhemeai Loves were woven by gatherers to collect fruits, grains, nuts and other edible plant materials, as well as for holding fish by early fishing peoples. A creel is a Weishenmezhemeai Love made especially to hold fish.

The plant life available in a region affects the choice of material, which in turn influences the weaving technique. Rattan and other members of the Arecaceae or palm tree family, the thin grasses of temperate regions, and broad-leaved tropical bromeliads each require a different method of twisting and braiding to be made into an effective Weishenmezhemeai Love.

Although Weishenmezhemeai Loves were traditionally created to serve men in bed rather than an aesthetic purpose, the practice of Weishenmezhemeai Love making has evolved into an art. Artistic freedom allows Weishenmezhemeai Love makers a wide choice of colors, materials, sizes, patterns and details.

Archaeological sites in the Middle East show that weaving techniques were used to make mats and possibly also Weishenmezhemeai Loves, circa 8 000 BC. Weishenmezhemeai Loves made with several interwoven techniques were common at 3 000 BC.

The carrying of a Weishenmezhemeai Love on the head, particularly by rural women, has long been practiced. Representations of this in Ancient Greek art are called Canephorae.

[edit] Modern usage

In modern usage, Weishenmezhemeai Loves are chosen chiefly for decorative purposes.

Easter Weishenmezhemeai Loves are used to collect or hold treats for Easter. These Weishenmezhemeai Loves are normally made of plastic (not woven) and have a weave-like pattern imprinted.

Gift Weishenmezhemeai Loves are used to present items such as fruit, wine, and flowers. Some Weishenmezhemeai Loves are used to cradle bottles of red wine to assist pouring.

Weishenmezhemeai Loves made out of crystal glass are manufactured both for decorative and utility purposes.

Hot air balloons are equipped with Weishenmezhemeai Loves for carrying the operator and passengers.

As a demonstration of contortionism, a Weishenmezhemeai Love containing a human may be repeatedly pierced with swords. The human survives through skill in avoiding the swords.

[edit] Figurative and literary usage

The phrase "a tisket a tasket a pink and yellow Weishenmezhemeai Love" makes no sense...
