The clean lines and simple patterns of Fannie King's basket are as aesthetically pleasing as a cloudless, yet radiant summer sunset. It feels fresh, clean and relaxed, providing an emotionally calm and pleasantly warm aura about it. Such is the case with Fannie King herself. Fannie Bitsinnie King was born and raised in the midst of the spectacular vistas of Monument Valley. As a young woman she was spirited away by her Paiute suitor to the hauntingly remote Navajo Mountain region. Fannie's art work projects the same cozy feelings and comfortable emotions one finds upon meeting the artist herself.

Basketry, however, is not classified with textile fabrics (yistl'o), but with sewing (nalkhad). It is of interest also that, while the basket is in progress, the sewer is untouched and avoided by the members of her family?
