Details

This weaving is in excellent condition. It only has a slight curve to the shape of the weaving, so it is not perfectly rectangular. This is one of the most popular patterns that likely resulted from J. B. Moore's work at the Crystal trading post was the Storm Pattern. This design is generally defined as a central rectangle connected by zig-zag lines to smaller rectangles in each corner. The storm pattern often is said to have symbolic meaning: the zig-zags are lighting, the corner rectangles are the four sacred mountains of the Navajo or the four directions or the four winds, etc. The owner has authorized us to lower the price from $950 to $835.
