Vintage Navajo Hand Woven Wool Yei Rug in Six Colors

The “Yei” are Holy People. Their use in Navajo weavings originated with duplication of ceremonial sand paintings. The earliest Yei rugs usually included one or two large Yei figures and this beautiful hand woven Navajo wool rug follows suit, with it’s artfully portrayed Yei figures, a single corn stalk, and detailed, geometric edge elements. A hub for Yei rugs is the Shiprock, New Mexico area and this rug is more than likely from that region. It’s in fantastic condition with vibrant earth tones and traditional design, zero damage, and no stains or fraying. It measures 40×22.5”, makes a great presentation of the art form and would ideally be used as a wall hanging.
