Joann Johnson claims that in all things, it takes two halves to make a whole. “Whether you are talking about people, forces of nature or your emotional state,” says Joann, “Even mountains, stars, plants and animals have male, female, positive and negative sides.” Working with this theme of harmony and balance in mind, Joann has woven this attractive basket which features duality stars along with elements of the traditional ceremonial basket which portray the Navajo universe. A simple, yet attractive, example of Joann’s cultural interpretation of the world.
