If you are ever lost, lonely and thirsty in the high desert country of the Great American Southwest, find yourself a dragonfly.  This is what a Navajo might do, because dragonflies symbolize life by way of water.  Follow a dragonfly home and he will show you a way to survive.  Elsie Holiday is well aware of the attributes this zippity-doo-daa bug represents, and she wanted to express the idea through her art.  Elsie is an amazing weaver; her creativity and quality of weave are unmatched.  Do yourself a favor, have a cool drink of water and entertain yourself with a dragonfly.

We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on every purchase.



About the artist:

Navajo Basket Weaver Elsie Holiday

Considered one of the best Navajo basket weavers, Elsie Stone Holiday married into the famed Douglas Mesa family of weavers. Weaving baskets has become almost an addiction for her. "When I go two or three days without weaving I get anxious to get started again," she says. She weaves 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. "Sometimes I think, 'How long can this last?'", she wistfully states, but for now she is content with her art, finding immense satisfaction in creating premier quality baskets.

Water Creatures
A set of four creatures associated with water and rainfall are the main themes of two of the reproductions of Beautyway sandpaintings. These are White Water Monster, Blue Thunder, Big Otter, and variegated (or Many-colored) Water Monster ("Cloud Monster," "Land Monster"). White Water Monster lives underground, a denizen of the lower worlds, and spurts up springs, wells, and streams ("something like a whale")? More about this legend
