Star light, star bright! With this basket, Navajo artist Alicia Nelson focuses on the beauty and aura of the Morning Star. Alicia’s basket references the manner in which this interstellar phenomenon is said to appear to glow more brightly just before the break of day. Dawn is one of the four cardinal light phenomena, a vital life-giving source which the morning star accentuates in such an amazing manner.


About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Alicia Nelson

Young and vulnerable to other's opinions, Alicia Nelson has nonetheless learned to trust her own instincts, and this has served her well as she has gone from being an apprentice basket weaver to an artist in her own right. Alicia trained under her mother-in-law, the famous Mary Holiday Black, recipient of the National Endowments 1995 Arts Heritage Award and fellowship. Alicia is one of only an estimated two dozen Navajo weavers who incorporate pictorial images into their baskets.
