Crystal Optical Navajo Rug Weaving : Historic : PC 45
This is a favorite from our personal collection! Woven in the 1900s this unusual Crystal-style Optical piece has a beautiful hand-carded, hand-spun Merino wool natural light brown "background" of four hooks. A central band showcases the weaving comb/fork used by Navajo weavers in black and red.
One of the most challenging aspects when weaving a piece is to create straight, even lines. The loom artist who created this piece was obviously a master. The lines are gorgeous and were made utilizing aniline dyed wool, and those little combs.
This piece has been a feature in our Navajo Textiles as Modern Art exhibit. It's easy to see what a gorgeous piece of weaving art that this is!
