In 1493, on Columbus' second voyage to the Americas, Spanish horses were brought back to North America, first in the Virgin Islands, and, in 1519, they were reintroduced on the continent, in modern-day Mexico. From there, they radiated throughout the American Great Plains and, shortly thereafter, to Navajo land. At that point, the Navajo people began a love affair with the horse that persists to this very day. Much like the introduction of Ford’s Mustang, the horse represented freedom, mobility, and speed. Elsie Holiday projects the love of the horse and their offspring through her Mother and Child reunion basket set. Might that be Paul Simon playing on the eight track?


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.
