SOLD Pictorial - Window Rock Navajo Weaving : 2037
Window Rock - gets its name from the hole in the 200 foot high sandstone hill where it is located. Until 1936, the area was sparsely populated and known only by its ceremonial name Niʼ Ałníiʼgi ("Center of the World"). It is important in the traditional Navajo Water Way Ceremony (Tóee).
It was one of the four places where Navajo medicine men go with their traditional woven water jugs to get water for the ceremony that is held for the abundance of rainfall. It was later re-named Tségháhoodzání (the Perforated Rock).
In this weaving we can see how the artist faithfully and beautifully recreated Window Rock. The muted colors from natural dyes, give tribute to the power and mystique of this holy place.
