Storm Pattern / Sandpainting Yei Pictorial Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2212

We've show this rug on the floor (see photo) and it's gorgeous. But when you see it hanging on the wall, you notice so many more fascinating details.

This weaving is in the Storm Pattern style. There are four identical corner elements (feathers) connected by lines (lightning) to a central rectangle showing creation story scene images with whirling logs, a bow and a bird at one end, and a bird with grain at the other.  The rectangle is surrounded by horned and feathered yeis peeking out above and below. There is so much energy generated in this piece through the arrows, the feathers, the birds, and the rainbow bars that it's hard to contain. Horned waterbugs have a predominant presence as well. 

This piece was given life in the 1920s using all hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wool.  The rich browns, black, and reds work so well against the field of natural gray/brown. It was featured in our Woven Holy People exhibit.  You can see the exhibit program guide here
