|#2953||21"x22"||Small Navajo rug, single horse blanket, hand woven wool, SW United States, ca. early 20thC, finely woven in off white, gray, russet brown, and light yellow, the weaver has woven a spirit trail into the bottom corner, very good condition, size 21"x22", #2953||$350.00|
The weaver has woven a spirit trail into the bottom corner. If any spirits were inadvertently
woven into the fabric, "the fabric of life", then the weaver leaves a spirit line for the energy
to have a path out. Many weaving cultures have similar superstitions, and actually, the tassels
themselves that appear in most Navajo weavings, can be viewed as sprit trails. You can see
the spirit line in the photo below. The contrasting brown line in the second yellow stripe.
The trail begins within the body of the rug, and leads out to the edge.
