Crystal Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 1051

This is a very nice historic Crystal weaving.  One of the things that makes this piece special is the unusual "picture frame" border.  The single alternating red lines add so much to this piece. The skilled artisan behind this piece hand-carded, had-spun, and hand-dyed the wool used in this piece.  

Another unique aspect this this piece was the intentional placement of dramatic sectional or "lazy lines" in the widest brown diamond.  

To appreciate all of the time and work that goes into a piece of woven art that has been hand-carded and hand spun, please watch this youtube video which shows Master Weaver Clara Sherman carding and spinning wool. It was filmed in 2009 and is such a blessing to demonstrate the ways of the Navajo weaver. When done by hand, the preparation of the wool can take months before it ever touches the loom.

It's been said by Navajo weavers, "If you like a piece it's not because you like it, it's because IT has chosen you."
