Ganado - Klagetoh Navajo Weaving : Elsie Bia : Churro 1496

Wow. Just WOW! Elsie Bia has done it again! Look at this incredible masterpiece Ganado/Klagetoh weaving! Just WOW! Using traditional colors of crimson red, gay, black, white, and tan, Native Churro wool, Elsie created this 53" x 71" piece.

In Canyon de Chelly is Spider Rock, the home of Spider Woman which is seen in the background of the photo. Spider Woman has blessed Elsie abundantly and gifted her in a powerful way to create such beautiful weavings. We are fortunate to have photos as this piece was given life by Elsie's gifted hands. 

Elsie shares, "My favorite designs are Burntwater, Wide Ruin, Ganado Red and Teec Nos Pos.  Weaving rugs is a Navajo tradition and it is passed down by my family, and I Love to weave.  It is my only income and it helps me a lot.  I enjoy doing my work.  It takes lots of time, not only to weave but all of the math and  counting.   I just love what I do, always challenging myself with new patterns and designs.  I really like taking my time to figure out what comes next in my weaving and then to see the outcome of the design.  Taking my time to figure out what comes next and the outcome of the design is exciting. “ 

It's been said by Navajo weavers, "If you like a piece it's not because you like it, it's because IT has chosen you."
