For years the public image of Navajo weaving has been the geometric designs of diamonds, zig zags and stripes. But by the end of the 19th century Navajo weavers began to include in their blankets pictorial images taken from their environment, from the landscape to designs of modern living—the U.S. flag, trains, automobiles and planes. This exhibition was organized by the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe.
