- Size: 28.5'' x 28.5''
Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. This textile is in excellent condition. The warp count is 14 and the weft count is 64, per inch. It has a very tight weave, tapestry quality. Ruby Manuelito had completed this weaving in 2000, when she was in her early 80s. Ruby is Hastiin Klah's niece. Hastiin (also spelled Hosteen in some publications) was the first weaver to ever create a sandpainting weaving. Ruby has won many awards, and is well-known and accomplished weaver. The owner has authorized that the price be lowered from $14,000 to $11,700. This is a wonderful collecting opportunity.
