Elsie Holiday has taken a squash blossom design and overlaid a turtle motif on top of it.  Using Germantown colors to execute her vision, she created a basket that is based in Navajo legend and artistic history.  Who else would make such a stunning basket with such a rich backstory?  Not many, that’s for sure.

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.

The scalps which they obtain are, however, not the object of the suitor test. Frog and turtle kill the enemy or their young women. They have hidden in the "walled up water supply" which is drawn off to reveal them? More about this legend
