HOLD - Pictorial - Great Star Native American Rug : Antique : PC 81 : 62" x 83"

Product Description

Germantown Pictorial Navajo rug.  This is a Germantown Great Star Pictorial weaving. It is incredibly rare and is from Steve's personal collection.  Steve said, "I have never seen another Navajo weaving like it.  It is in mint condition and has never been restored, to my knowledge. " He collected it in the early 1990s.

The Great Star Ceremony is a lesser known origin ceremony.  The black circle in the center of the star represents the night sky and the cross in the center depicts the star at the center of the universe.
The Myth and Prayers of the Great Star Chant  (Recorded by MARY C. WHEELWRIGHT). (Edited with commentaries by DAVID P. McALLESTER.) (Navajo Religion Series, Vol. IV.) 

Navajo Germantown textile, Circa 1880, 4-ply Germantown yarn, commercial cotton warps, aniline dyes.

Stand back and look how the gifted weaver added those four black tag elements inside the weaving to give it dimension, as well as flaring the points on the diamonds.  It is super finely woven and does give the illusion of being at the center of the universe.

This beautiful piece was featured in the Navajo Textiles as Modern Art exhibit held at Nizhoni Ranch Gallery March 11 - June 30 2017. You can find this weaving in the catalog Navajo Textiles As Modern Art, also pictured on the back cover.
