Yei Be Chei- Summoned Spirits : Historic : GHT 794

Product Description
During Healing Ceremonies, the medicine man chants to summon the spirits.  In this weaving we see Talking God (lots of feathers) and three Yei Be Che dancers at a ceremony.  Floating heads depict the spirits that have been summoned.  At the feet of the dancers we see small yei figures. 
Woven in the Teec Nos Pos area the rich browns were obtained from dying the wool with Mahogany root.  This piece was made using all hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wool.  It is an early and unusual portrayal of the Yei Be Chei weaving.
