Yei - Lukachukai Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2213

If you're looking for historic pieces woven by the same gifted artist, then we're fairly certain that this piece, and GHT 2039 (below) are what you're looking for.  Take a look at the similarities:

Both feature the same diagonal body coloring, medicine bundles, feet treatment, feather banners, and streamer dangles. If not woven by the same person, the weavers were closely related. It was woven with all hand-carded, hand-spun, hand-dyed native wool.

Both weavings are from the Lukachukai area, and were featured in our Woven Holy People exhibit.  You can view the exhibit guide here.  A new tab will open.
