Crystal / Storm Pattern Pictorial Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 1991

Product Description

Originally seen as a result of JB Moore's influence at the Crystal Trading post, this "quincunx" design (an arrangement of five objects with four at the corners of a square or rectangle and the fifth at its center) was woven by just one family for a while. The Storm pattern had one appearance in his 1903 catalog (#9) and two in the 1911 catalog (#27 & #28) it was very well received.  Later, the Storm Pattern became a regionally recognized style from the Tuba (western area) of the reservation. 

Some say the complex designs are very symbolic with the elements in the four corners representing the sacred mountains, or perhaps the four winds, or four directions.  The central design, usually a square or rectangle shape might represent the center of the universe, a home,  or the center of Navajo emergence.  Connecting the corners to the center are usually zig-zag lines - which could represent lightning.  

In the description for JB Moore's plate #28 he wrote, "This pattern is one of the really legendary designs embodying a portion of the Navajo mythology."Weavers differ in how they interpret the style.  Some weavers say that the elements are not symbolic and that they are merely designs for the pattern. Others suggest that the symbolism was created by traders. Did JB Moore create and proliferate a non-existent "legend"? 

Beautifully woven with brown/black wool, rich red, bright cream/white, all serve to show off the natural variegated brown wool background.  This is a stunning piece!
