This basket was bought and sold in the summer of 1996. It spent the last 23 years in a collection back East, then found its way back to Twin Rocks. Through her basket, Lorraine Black shows her love of life and living on the eastern edge of Monument Valley. There she spends quality time with her family, along with her dogs, sheep, and horse. The horse heads depicted along the outside edge of Lorraine’s modified ceremonial and her old Dodge truck represent the freedom and mobility so important to this free-spirited artist.


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.

Navajo Basketry

Basketry is a woman's industry, which is also pursued by the nadle (he changes), hermaphrodites, or men skilled in the arts and industries of both men and women. Basketry, however, is not classified with textile fabrics (yistl'o), but with sewing (nalkhad). It is of interest also that, while the basket is in progress, the sewer is untouched and avoided by the members of her family?
