Description

This coiled basketry plaque depicts 8 Yei figures in a concentric circle.

About the Artist (Born 1975, Navajo)  Born at Shiprock, New Mexico, Alicia married Jonathan Black.  Mary Black, her mother-in-law taught Alicia how to gather and process the materials for basket weaving.  Her designs stem from a reverence for Navajo symbols.  The arrangement of her pictorial elements are entirely inventive, unique to her personal aesthetic.  

1 1/2 pages are devoted to telling Alicia's story as a basket weaver in Schaaf's book American Indian Baskets I, 1,500 Biographies.  Six of her dynamically designed trays enhance her biography--an unusual number devoted to just one weaver in this publication.
