Evelyn Cly is one of the more humble and soft-spoken Navajo basket weavers. She has won numerous awards for her creations, but only smiles and nods in appreciation when she is recognized for her creativity. Evelyn was trained by her paternal grandmother Wanda Rock, and recalls weaving her first basket when she was only five years old. From that point on Evelyn has been involved in the art and loves to weave geometric and traditional figures. She believes when it comes to design, that more is less, and thinks basic patterns and open fields are most dramatic and appealing. This particular basket was woven several years ago and placed in a collection back East. Through an estate settlement, the basket has been returned to the Southwest and is looking for a new place to grace. The big horn sheep design was inspired by petroglyphs on red rock cliffs near Evelyn's home on Douglas Mesa, Utah.

Evelyn's baskets are known for their extremely tight weave and open geometric designs. Perhaps the best indicator of how valuable her baskets are is that different traders have her baskets in their private collections.
