3 New Sandpainting Navajo Rugs Listed. 2 Featured Navajo Rugs.
March arrived “like a lamb and may go out like a lion.” The month started pretty dry and we are excited to experience rain every few days since mid-month. Water is highly valued in this agriculture based county in central California and to the more than 40 million people who live in the rest of the state.
Long before we ever heard the term Coronavirus, Red Mesa Gallery’s Jeff Voracek and I were working on bringing you three outstanding Sandpainting weavings. These rare and beautiful pieces are exceptional works of art steeped in Navajo spiritual beliefs.
