Crystal / Storm Pattern / Pictorial Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2241

Made in the 1910s from hand-spun, hand-dyed Merino sheep wool, this is a great example of a mixed style. The corn, feathers, and arrows push it into the pictorial style.

The central design is connected to each of the corner shapes which lends itself to the Storm pattern, The oriental styled hooks in the design and border patterns give influence from the Crystal Style. This was made by a talented weaver! 

The person who brought this piece to life may have also been the person to bring GHT 2208 to life as well - the style of weaving and the elements in both, are similar. Here is GHT 2208 for comparison:
