Welcome to Nizhoni Ranch Gallery!
Navajo weaver Loween Peshlakai from the Waterflow Area has created a Yei be Chei weaving. During the Nightway ceremony the leader-the talking god- is in the white mask and is followed by 6 dancers with blue masks. A ruff of spruce is around each dancer's neck. Foxtails complete the look.
Nightway Sandpainting with a folk art feel. Wonderful detail featuring a Yei, patient and Mediccine man. The patient is wrapped in a blanket and looks to be dancing.
Hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wool was used. Beautiful variegated brown/gray background wool. exquisite!
