Serape Child's Blanket : Lucie Marianito : Churro 1309
Master Weaver Lucie Marianito chose to incorporate the Spiderwoman hole in this beautiful child's blanket / serape. All Natural Dyes!
The Spiderwoman hole is quite rare in a Navajo blanket. They were typically only woven at Bosque Redondo (1863-1868). The Navajo would weave the blankets with the Spider woman hole, so they could hang the blanket up and still see out through the hole.
As evidence of her gifted weaving, she earned 1st place at the 2014 Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial in this division. The brilliant colors in this piece are Cochineal red, creamy white, Indigo blue, with rabbit brush yellow accents woven throughout. There are also bands of purple, achieved by over dying Indigo with Cochineal. This is a gorgeous piece of art!
weft count : 34 / inch - warp count 16 / inch - Very finely woven.
This weaving is featured in our "Master Weavings of the Navajo Churro Collection" Exhibit at Nizhoni Ranch Gallery, March 2019 and the "Master Weavings of the Navajo Churro Collection" catalog.
