Shirley Sandoval, Chief Blanket Style Hand Woven Rug, Navajo
Navajo artist Shirley Sandoval wove this magnificent Chief inspired Blanket. The great thing about handmade art is that the artists’ gets to express their own style. Shirley has taken a classic Chief Blanket pattern and turned it into something never seen before. The colors remind you of a German Town Revival, the border a Teec Nos Pos, and the indigo blue a Chief Blanket. This is a big weaving that needs a space that will accommodate its beauty, maybe a large living area surrounded by tiles, pottery, and wood flooring.
