Yei - Hero Twin Pictorial Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 1936

Important to the Navajo emergence story are the Hero Twins - Monster Slayer who represents protective, impulsiveness and aggressive behavior, and Born of Water - representative of care, caution, preparedness.

In this vintage 1920s pictorial weaving from the Crystal area, we see the Hero Twins in the center of this design filled with flowing energy. All wool was hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed.
