This old-style basket design by Fannie King evokes Navajo/Paiute history and culture. Based upon modifications of traditional cultural themes, this weaving displays wonderful geometry along with an entry/escape route for wandering spirits. Fannie makes great shapes and weaves tight coils and complex patterns. Consequently, Fanny’s baskets are always a good acquisition.
