Optical Navajo design. Hand-carded, hand-spun, hand-dyed with Lincoln wool. Likely was woven in the Bistie Area due to the over dyed grey which was a common practice in the area.
This weaving was part of an Exhibition showing at the Tucson Desert Art Museum January 4 2017 to April 30 2017. Please look at the Dazzled Eye catalog on page 24 to ...
The beautiful brown in this weaving is derived from Mountain Mahogany root. It's an antique optical design woven in the Teec Nos Pos area and was created with Lincoln wool.
The optical design keeps you looking and trying to decide if the points are going up or down.
This beautiful piece was featured in the Navajo Textiles as Modern Art exhibit...
