Transitional Optical Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 1901

Optical Transitional Navajo blanket, woven with Merino wool, hand carded, hand spun with aniline dyes and some natural wool colors.  The pattern is reminiscent of historic quilt designs, with each color block created with lazy lines, very unusual.  

70 years ahead of the color pallet from the 1970s, this talented Navajo weaver wove with colors that would have reminded her of Autumn on the reservation.

This weaving was part of an Exhibition showing at the Tucson Desert Art Museum January 4 2017 to April 30 2017. Please look at the Dazzled Eye catalog on page 32 to find this weaving.
