Night Sky Yei be Chei Pictorial Navajo Weaving : Berlinda Nez Barber : Churro 227 : 48" x 105"

Product Description

Incredible Night Sky Yei be Chei Pictorial with a Teec Nos Pos border by Master Weaver Berlinda Nez Barber - one of the very best contemporary weavers today.

This rug is made from custom spun, hand dyed Churro wool. It is extremely tightly woven.  Yei imagery against a night sky, depicting stars, constellations and moon.  1.5 years on the loom! 

The Navajo way of life is based on an oral tradition in which stories, lessons and values are passed down from generation to generation. The Creation story of the Navajo Emergence as “The People or Dine” is as sacred as the Bible to the Navajo.  One theme reoccurs often and in almost all writings, that is central to the Navajo, attainment and maintenance of harmony and beauty, called Hozho.  To create Hozho ceremonies are preformed.

The Yei Be Chei dancers are the human impersonators of holy people which perform the ceremonies. The Yei Be Chei weavings present the dancers as they dance, perform, and enact the ceremony of the Yeis. The Yeis perform specific dances and rituals, as directed by the Medicine Man, during the ceremony for the desired end.

Yei be Chei weavings are highly individual, therefore, different elements may be found in them. Male Yeis have round heads and Female Yeis have square heads. Other elements included may be: gourds, ruffs of spruce around the neck, fox pelts, moccasins, woven garters or sashes, arrows, corn, clouds, stars, and more.

Berlinda is from the famous and talented Nez Family.  Her mother Grace, 6 sisters and niece are all award winning and highly respected Master Weavers.  Several of her weavings have been on exhibit at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, AZ. 

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, page 18.

This weaving was part of the 2016 /2017 Painting with Wool : Navajo Pictorial Weavings exhibit at Nizhoni Ranch Gallery and is on the cover and page 7 of the catalog for the show. 

This weaving has been tucked away in the Getzwiller personal collection, as many of the Nez pieces have, since it was finished in 2000.  Berlinda started this weaving July 1998 and finished Jan 2000.  It is time for this piece to grace the wall of a new owner.  First time offered - Jan 2022.
