Welcome to Nizhoni Ranch Gallery!
We are pleased to share with you this Chinle style floor runner by Bessie Yazzie.
The rich crimson red, blue-black and gorgeous natural gray brown in this piece work so well together. The way the artist started at the bottom with bands and patterns and then bringing them all together in the center and repeating the pattern is simple and so love...
Miniature Chinle Tapestry Navajo Weaver Matilda Yazzie Bia8 1/2″ x 9 3/4″Miniature tapestries are unique in Navajo weaving – since the early 1970’s they have been woven by just a few extended families from The Sawmill/White Clay area of the Navajo reservation. They have evolved into their own distinctive type of Navajo weaving collectible.
Long before the Chinle weavings became well-known for their banded style, this was a Chinle weaving. Contemporary weaver Susie Begay revived the Old Style in this gorgeous piece. Using a limited palette of gray, red, black, and white, the chained vertical diamonds create a stunning focal point.
