This Navajo weaving was woven with a tightly spun yarn, which contributes to the crispness of the motif. With 3D cubes displayed in a diamond arrangement (two central diamonds, and two half diamonds flanking on each side), these white, red and dark brown-black cubes appear almost to "float" over a beautiful carded gray background. Framing the carded gray background is a white "Y" motif repeated along the length of the weaving, woven upon a black terminal border. This weaving was recently professionally cleaned through our gallery's services and is in excellent condition. Slight fade.
