Their durability is wonderful. They never fade, no matter how frequently washed—an operation in which amole, the saponaceous root of the Palmilla, should be substituted for soap. As for wear, I have seen the latter blankets which have been used for rugs on the floors of populous Mexican houses for fifty years, which still retain their brilliant color, and show serious wear only at their broken edges. And they will hold water as well as canvas will.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003ca name=\"d20e2126\"\u003e\u003c\/a\u003eA balleta (Bayeta) blanket like that pictured elsewhere is worth $200 and not a dozen of them could be bought at any price today. It is seventy-three inches long by fifty-six inches wide and weighs six pounds. You can easily reckon that the thread in it cost something, at $6 a pound, and the weaving occupied a Navaho woman for many months. It is hardly thicker than an ordinary book cover, and is almost as firm. It is too thin and stiff to be an ideal bed-blanket, and it was never meant to be one. All blankets of that quality were made to be worn on the shoulders of chiefs; and most of them were ponchos—that is, they had a small slit left in the center for the wearer to put his head through, so that the blanket would hang upon him like a cape. Thus it was combined overcoat, water-proof, and adornment.\"\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRainbow bars, crosses (stars) rivers or lightning zig-zags, are all very important in the life of the Navajo Indian.  These powerful symbols once told a story that is a mystery today. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis blanket, possibly 150 years old, is a rare opportunity to own part of the Native American History. During the early pioneer days the Navajo would trade with other Indian Tribes and the Cavalry.  A single Navajo Blanket was sometimes traded for many horses or as much as $50 in gold.  A Navajo blanket was highly prized and valuable, as they were so tightly woven they could save a life, keeping the owner warm and dry in a rain or snowstorm.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis particular weaving is expertly woven and as all Navajo Weavers incorporated art into life.  The combinations of color and design elements reveal a complex yet geometrically simple art statement.  Navajos were the pioneers of Modern Art.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\n\u003cspan\u003eThis weaving was part of \u003c\/span\u003e\u003ca href=\"%20https:\/\/www.navajorug.com\/pages\/exhibit-woven-nation-2014\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan\u003eNAVAJO NATION EXHIBIT,  \"Collection of Steve Getzwiller\" Exhibition at the Tubac Center for the Arts\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eTubac Arizona 2014\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\u003cem\u003eThis weaving is part of \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.navajorug.com\/pages\/art-history-woven-together-1999\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eArt \u0026amp;

Their durability is wonderful. They never fade, no matter how frequently washed—an operation in which amole, the saponaceous root of the Palmilla, should be substituted for soap. As for wear, I have seen the latter blankets which have been used for rugs on the floors of populous Mexican houses for fifty years, which still retain their brilliant color, and show serious wear only at their broken edges. And they will hold water as well as canvas will.\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003e\u003ca name=\"d20e2126\"\u003e\u003c\/a\u003eA balleta (Bayeta) blanket like that pictured elsewhere is worth $200 and not a dozen of them could be bought at any price today. It is seventy-three inches long by fifty-six inches wide and weighs six pounds. You can easily reckon that the thread in it cost something, at $6 a pound, and the weaving occupied a Navaho woman for many months. It is hardly thicker than an ordinary book cover, and is almost as firm. It is too thin and stiff to be an ideal bed-blanket, and it was never meant to be one. All blankets of that quality were made to be worn on the shoulders of chiefs; and most of them were ponchos—that is, they had a small slit left in the center for the wearer to put his head through, so that the blanket would hang upon him like a cape. Thus it was combined overcoat, water-proof, and adornment.\"\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRainbow bars, crosses (stars) rivers or lightning zig-zags, are all very important in the life of the Navajo Indian.  These powerful symbols once told a story that is a mystery today. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis blanket, possibly 150 years old, is a rare opportunity to own part of the Native American History. During the early pioneer days the Navajo would trade with other Indian Tribes and the Cavalry.  A single Navajo Blanket was sometimes traded for many horses or as much as $50 in gold.  A Navajo blanket was highly prized and valuable, as they were so tightly woven they could save a life, keeping the owner warm and dry in a rain or snowstorm.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis particular weaving is expertly woven and as all Navajo Weavers incorporated art into life.  The combinations of color and design elements reveal a complex yet geometrically simple art statement.  Navajos were the pioneers of Modern Art.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\n\u003cspan\u003eThis weaving was part of \u003c\/span\u003e\u003ca href=\"%20https:\/\/www.navajorug.com\/pages\/exhibit-woven-nation-2014\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan\u003eNAVAJO NATION EXHIBIT,  \"Collection of Steve Getzwiller\" Exhibition at the Tubac Center for the Arts\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eTubac Arizona 2014\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\n\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/blockquote\u003e\n\u003cblockquote\u003e\u003cem\u003eThis weaving is part of \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.navajorug.com\/pages\/art-history-woven-together-1999\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eArt \u0026amp;
