Hozho is the main theme behind the culture of the Navajo. It speaks of harmony and balance in all things and is often represented through a positive and negative or black and white format in Navajo art. Such was the case with Lorraine Black’s two-piece basket set (circa 1990). In both baskets, the Rainbow deity encircles thunder and lightning to show that the natural world best represents Hozho through its display of frightening storms and the nourishing moisture it brings to the world of the Navajo.


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.
