Publisher Comments:

Legend has it that a traveling missionary brought an Oriental rug to the Four Corners area of the Navajo Reservation before 1995. Teec Nos Pos weavers quick to adopt some of the distinctive motifs from these rugs, creating large, intricate and colorful designs. Teec Nos Pos geometric patterns and color were considered aberrant to the mainstream of Navajo design in the early twentieth century. Today these magnificient rugs are considered a classic twentieth century weaving and are highly collectible. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition (March 16 2003--January 11 2004) at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Sante Fe.
