Optical Art Crystal Transitional blanket. Woven with Merino wool using aniline red dye. Woven more like a blanket instead of a rug, this optical textile is a transitional weaving. Between 1895 and 1905, Navajos made the switch from weaving primarily blankets to rugs.
This weaving was part of an Exhibition showing at the Tucson Desert Art Muse...
