Master basket weaver, Joann Johnson, has come up with another super-creative design. She has taken the age-old Chief Pattern, so often found in traditional Navajo textiles, and tweaked it into a very attractive basket pattern. This basket is packed with cultural significance. Black, white, red, and blue stripes speak of directional importance and the many levels of emergence, while encased crosses reflect the belief in balance and harmony through equal and opposite interaction. A central, outward-radiating spiral represents the cyclones and whirlwinds believed to support and help maintain the Navajo universe.
