Double Saddle Blanket Pictorial Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 1973

Usually when a weaver crafted a saddle blanket - whether double or single, they would leave the central portion blank.  In this special piece, the weaver placed the image of a very handsome horse in the central panel.  Perhaps it is an image to honor the black blaze-faced horse who would be wearing it? 

This piece was woven using hand-carded, hand-spun, naturally colored wool, with added details made with naturally dyed wool.  It's a gorgeous piece and is in excellent condition.
