Buffalo ('ayani) are sometimes featured in Navajo myth and legend. They are believed to stand as a metaphor for the plains tribes and are considered to be supernatural. With this outstanding basket, Lorraine Black recreates a sand painting that depicts the episode of Holy Man overcoming the Buffalo People in the Shooting Chant. With this imagery, Lorraine portrays an extremely elaborate sand painting with a thoughtful and provocative message to consider.


About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Lorraine Black

Inspired by dreams, Lorraine Black's skills have literally elevated basket weaving to new dimensions. Lorraine Black's infectious laugh belies the serious magic her hands conjure up when weaving a basket. Unprecedented in her ideas, Lorraine's baskets are innovative and beautiful. Many of them make good use of texture through over-stitching and the addition of objects such as flint arrowheads or horsehair.
