ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the work of Arizona textile artist Carol Eckert. It was in the late 1970s that Eckert experimented with coil basketry and from then has found her true medium. Her baskets are dominated by intricately designed animals in size that fit with the human body. Most of the repertoire of animals are from southwestern U.S. and Africa and they evoke the religious and ceremonial art forms found in those areas A photograph of her work entitled "Gods, Beasts and Spirits," is presented. One of the early influences on Eckert was a beaded Yoruba headdress festooned with fantastic animals and birds.
