SOLD Teec Nos Pos : Historic : GHT 697

As we've said in other postings, each weaving has a story - some are known, and some are mysteries.  In this case, we're thrilled to share the story of this piece after it was brought to life by the artist. 

The most significant thing about this weaving is, it was bought by a couple in the late 1930s, going through the Navajo Reservation.

They took it back home to Georgia according to their son: put it away because it didn’t go with the rest of their decor, and it wasn’t brought out again until I bought it from the son. So essentially it is a late 1930s weaving in almost new condition, it would last forever on the floor, or make great wall art! It has been in our personal collection for several years.

The beauty and intricate detail in this piece is incredible.  The outer border has been woven in such a manner that it  looks like musical notes at first glance, but on further inspection you see that it is actually stylized squash blossoms and tiny red flags. The squash blossoms appear again as they, now red, border the inner diamonds.  This piece has such a WOW factor.
