Peggy Black first saw this ram design on rock art around her home on Douglas Mesa, which sits at the eastern edge of Monument Valley, Utah. Peggy adapted the petroglyph and made it her own by adding a heart line and edging the weaving with a modified ceremonial pattern around the outside edge. Many years ago, Peggy’s basket was purchased by a prominent collector from Aspen, Colorado. Through that estate, Peggy’s basket has returned to Twin Rocks and is now looking for a second home.


About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Peggy Black

One of the famous Douglas Mesa basket weavers, there wasn't much question about what Peggy Rock Black would choose to pursue in life. She was born into a family of weavers before she married into an equally talented family of weavers.

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?
