Nightway Sandpainting Navajo Weaving Whirling Logs 1131J

Sunday, March 29th, 2020













$11200

  • Number: 1131j
  • Rug Size: 102″ x 70″
  • Colors: Red, blue, gray, brown, tan, and black.
  • Condition: Excellent
  • Circa: 1920
  • Weaver: Unknown
  • Description: A Guardian Yei encloses three sides of the weaving, leaving the east side open. Talking God, leader of the Yei’s dressed in white is on the left. On the right is his counterpart Calling God dressed in red. Talking God is also known as the God of the east, he stands on the open side of the weaving, which is usually oriented eastward. The Yei on the top and bottom are the Humpback Yei. The Humpback Yei taught farming to the Navajo. They carry bags of seeds on their backs and hold planting sticks in their hands. The central cross represents two perpendicular logs and shows the spinning motion of the raft as it is carried down the river. Four pairs of Male and Female Yei sit on the arms of the cross and guide the raft during the journey.
  • Details: Handspun yarn. A very heavy rug. Below is a quote taken from Navajo Weavings Ceremonial Themes by Rebecca M. Valette and Jean-Paul Valette; Page 121. Page 163 has a weaving very similar to this one. “Whirling logs is one of four large Sandpaintings of the Nightway; it is created during the sixth day of the ceremony. It is the story of a young Navajo man known as “the Visionary,” who ignores the repeated warnings from elders and decides to float down the San Juan River hidden in the hollow trunk of a cottonwood tree. During the journey, the improvised raft plunges into the deep waters of the river, spins out of control in its whirlpools, and runs into numerous difficulties before it is brought to safety by the Yei and other holy people associated with the Nightway. After his rescue, the Hero learns the ceremonial practices and acquires other useful knowledge from his divine protectors, which he later passes on to his earthly brothers, the Navajo People.

Mother Earth Father Sky Sandpainting Navajo Weaving 1130J

Sunday, March 29th, 2020













$21100

  • Number: 1130j
  • Rug Size: 74″ x 67″
  • Colors: Natural black / brown, salt and pepper gray, white, brown, tan and aniline dyed red, yellow, orange, and green.
  • Condition: Excellent
  • Circa: 1920
  • Weaver: Unknown
  • Description: In this large, detailed, Navajo weaving of Father Sky and Mother Earth, the usual Rainbow Guardian is replaced by a black ribbon border. The field is white with most of the field covered up by the large figures of Father Sky and Mother Earth. Above, Father Sky and Mother Earth are protected by two Guardians – a Yei and a bat. The horns on their heads are symbols of their power. In the body of Father Sky are the constellations – the Moon and the Sun. Below his neck, the intertwined zig zag lines represent the Milky Way; the small rectangles represent Rainbow Bars. Father Sky’s and Mother Earth’s arms and legs are connected, just as the sky and the earth touch on the horizon. Mother Earth’s body contains the four sacred plants – corn, squash, bean and tobacco – and is connected to a pool of water in the center.
  • Details: Handspun wool; large Sandpainting weavings are rare.

Sandpainting Mountainway Navajo Weaving People of the Myth or Mountain Gods 1129J

Sunday, March 29th, 2020













$29900

  • Number: 1129j
  • Rug Size: 107″ x 78″
  • Colors: A natural tan, sand, white, black, and aniline dyed red, blue, yellow, gold, brown, and reddish brown.
  • Condition: Excellent
  • Circa: 1920
  • Weaver: Unknown
  • Description: Quote taken from Navajo Weavings Ceremonial Themes by Rebecca M. Valette and Jean-Paul Valette: “The design represents four People of the Myth or Mountain gods in quadrants formed by the sacred plants (corn, beans, squash, and tobacco) emerging from the central pool of water. The People are depicted in the four directional colors white (east), blue (south), yellow (west), and black (north). All except the east side is protected by a Rainbow Garland. On the open side are Guardian’s – an Otter and a Beaver.” See page 123 of the above book for a similar weaving; this one may be by the same weaver.
  • Details: Handspun yarn, the variegation in the natural tan sand is outstanding. Large Sandpainting’s are very rare, ones of this size are even rarer. In the Valette’s book most of the rugs larger than this one were woven by Hosteen Klah; see pages 126 and 129 to 133.
