Corn Yei Pictorial : Helene Nez : Churro 241
Helene Nez is an extremely talented weaver. She has won many awards for her outstanding skill and eye for detail.
In this piece of art she has created a Yei pictorial with a Teec Nos Pos border. There are three Yei in this piece - two yei on either side with valero stars, and inside the central diamond, a corn yei.
This piece was woven using Navajo Churro wool which was hand-dyed, additionally she used silk highlights. This is a one-of-a-kind spectacular piece. Spiderwoman smiles fondly when she thinks of Helene Nez.
It was also featured in our Holy Woven People Exhibit. You can see it in the Exhibit guide - click here. It is from our exclusive Churro Collection.
