Crystal / Storm Pattern Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2208

This piece has so much action and energy! It was brought to life in the 1920s. And was very likely woven by the same master weaver who created GHT 2241 shown here:

The Storm Pattern has four corner identical corner shapes which all join a central square/rectangle/diamond by some manner.

Let's take a closer look at this piece.  Start first with the outer borders. The top and side borders are very complex, and have different patterns.

The corner "L" shapes join the central diamond with int
ertwined, lightning bars.

Four whirling log shapes fill the space between the corner and the diamond.

The diamond is unusual because of all of the action outside and inside. Outside the diamond is lined with mostly red "flags" (can you find the two white ones?) Inside the diamond, the black hook with cream border, the red hook with tan border, and then another diamond and more shapes. each goes deeper and deeper and deeper. This is a special piece!
