Yei Be Chei Dancer : Historic Navajo Weaving : GHT 2247

Most likely this piece was woven in the Two Grey Hills area of the Navajo reservation.  Showcased in the center of the piece is a Yei Be Chei Dancer. He is wearing a squash blossom necklace and just a hint of red in his footwear.  

The beautiful hooked shapes in the borders of this design show how the Navajo were influenced by the designs seen in oriental rugs.  

This piece was featured in our Woven Holy People exhibit.  You can see the exhibit guide here
