Yei Be Chei Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 757
All Yei and Yei Be Chei weavings are very special. Shown here we have a spectacular rug from the 1920s. We have two pairs of Male and Female Yeis dancing while holding blankets. There are rainbow bars floating all around them indicating these dancers are surrounded by good luck and prosperity. A "spirit" line is prominent in this piece, can you find it?
This rug was woven using all hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wool. It has been in our private collection for many years. This piece was also featured in our Woven Holy People exhibit. You can see the exhibition guide here. . A new window will open.
