SOLD 2nd Phase Chief Blanket variant : Laberta Marianito & Julia Upshaw : Churro 1499

There's something magical about how a weaving is displayed. We've talked about this before. How and where a piece is placed can change the environment in an entire room.

Here we have a GORGEOUS 2nd Phase Navajo Chief Blanket variant that was team woven by Laberta Marianito and Julia Upshaw. It measures 76" x 58".

It was created using all natural dyes - Indigo blue and green, Cochineal red, and Rabbit Brush yellow. This incredible piece spent nearly three years on the loom. You can see in the photo below, or click on it for a larger image, how finely this piece was woven. The talent and skill wrapped up in this piece is like no other. Truly a one-of-a-kind treasure.
