Description

An exquisite example of a centuries-old Navajo craft, this sophisticated basket was handcrafted by Sally Black, one of the most innovative and well-known basket makers working today. Its design depicts Ni’hodilhil, the First World in the Navajo creation story. According to legend, the First World was filled with blackness and framed by four columns of cloud; First Man and First Woman formed where the clouds’ edges met. This basket’s imagery was created by hand-weaving all-natural plant fibers, including white yucca fibers and yellow and brown willow fibers. The artist is widely known for her incredible precision and her use of modern, innovative designs to convey age-old themes. This unique basket is an extraordinary work of fine art that will be appreciated by collectors of Native American arts and crafts.

Our Guarantee of Authenticity

At Shumakolowa Native Arts, we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft. At a time when many commercially-made products are being sold as handcrafted Native American art, our in-depth purchase process allows us to guarantee the authenticity of every unique piece of fine art we offer. For more than 35 years, we have made it a priority to visit artists in their studio or home to purchase their latest handcrafted pieces and learn about their work. We have developed lasting relationships with artists, as well as dealers and collectors, and we take pride in being a trusted destination for fine Native American art.
