<< Previous in Books Next in Books >>
Price: $75.00
Item Number: 780764353741
Over 400 pages of photos, documentation, research and interpretation of the history of the development of Navajo weavings with imagery reflective of sandpaintings and the figures and designs found in such. Eight chapters carefully take the reader from elements of the Navajo culture, the people and the land through the development of the weaving tradition, influences of regions, traders and the market and then through detailed examples of Yeii, Yeibichai and sandpainting weavings and the variety of themes and design elements in such.
