This weaving is in very good condition. All four corners are intact. There is no edge wear or color run. There are a couple of small pale superficial spots. One area at the end has some minor moth grazing. The warp count is 7, and the weft count is 38 per inch. Acquired from an old family collection in Arizona. The owners of this collection acquired many of their pieces directly from Claiborne “Clay” Lockett (1908-1984). Clay Lockett was a former member of the Board of Trustees of the Museum of Northern Arizona from 1959-1971, purchasing agent for the Museum Shop from the time it opened in 1965, regular judge for Museum shows, appraiser of acquisitions, and one of MNA's most generous donors having given two major collections of Indian paintings, kachina dolls, rugs, jewelry, and pottery.
