- Teec Nos Pos Antique Treasures
Steve has had a long obsession with Teec Nos Pos. His appreciation for the the design begins with the degree of difficulty. The signature borders have also drawn his eye. Teec Nos Pos height of quality hit in the 1930's, however there are magnificent pieces from the 1910's and 20's as well. Often you will find very intriguing imagery of the Hero Twins.
The one below we find particularly interesting. While this is our strong belief - there really is no way to be sure what story the weaver was telling is that this is the emergence story. We see the hero twins without doubt, there are other elements such as the border, the feathers, bows and some spent arrows along with arrows with the arrowhead attached. Her use of wool in the center background is special. If you look closely you will see the change up of colors that are not in a mirror like image - which likely was intentional. Why and what meaning? Up to the collectors interpretation. No matter we love this piece. Very special indeed.
