Vintage Navajo Rug Weaving Yei Dieties 20 X 25 Inches
Lovely vintage wool Navajo rug weaving. 25 x 20 inches. This has been appraised and appraisal document is in the second photo. Features traditional Navajo deities, Yei. The Yei figures are female indicated by the square heads. This piece is in excellent vintage condition. The original tag reads Museum of northern Arizona, Flagstaff, hand woven by Navajo Indians. Though I acquired this second hand, I imagine this was part of the Flagstaff Cultural Partners and Museum of Northern Arizona Navajo rug auction. A gorgeous representation of traditional, Navajo art and culture. If you are unfamiliar with the traditions surrounding Navajo spirituality, I would recommend looking it up to give context to this weaving.
There is at least one place I noted that appears to have some minor dirt but otherwise this item is in excellent condition. Please view all photos. Navajo, Native American vibes.
