Pictorial - Hubbell Cross Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2180

JL Hubbell of the Hubbell Trading Post had great influence in improving the quality of Navajo weavings.  Known more for his influence the development of the Ganado style of weaving, he was also responsible for having weavers use what has become known as the Hubbell Cross in their creations.  The Hubbell Cross is recognized as the large cross in this piece.  The four corner cross elements are known as Spiderwoman crosses. This piece has a spectacular gray/brown natural colored background of Merino wool.  It is of exceptional quality and in excellent condition!

Crosses do not have a religious meaning for the Navajo, rather they are duality symbols - like yin and yang, good and bad, earth and sky, night and day, etc.
