4804 Crystal "Pictorial"

$ 950.00

“Corn is Life,” you will sometimes hear out in the Navajo Nation. The importance of corn in Navajo life is celebrated in this rug, otherwise probably classified as a “semi-pictorial Crystal.” This could be called a double horse blanket. The twist in white wefts on the edges of bands gives them an interesting “crystal” effect and differentiates it from similar weavings called by the name of--and from--Chinle. This is hand-spun yarn, with natural/vegetal dyes in subtle, shifting tones for a very nice chromatic balance in this fine weaving.  65” x 43”
