Pictorial - Pow Wow Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2050

Woven in the 1940's, this weaving is a one of a kind, most likely woven in the Monument Valley region of the Navajo Reservation when John Ford was making his Western Movies.  He often cast Navajos to play the part of Plains Indian warriors.   This Sioux Chief is sporting a button down collar and suspenders.

It was woven using hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wools.  This is a very special weaving with rare pictorial elements, especially the central figure with the Indian Headdress! The mountain range border is very nice. This piece was expertly woven.  A wonderful piece of art and history!
