From the Trail of Painted Ponies Fall 2016 Release, Navajo Chief. Designed by artist, Karlynn Keyes. Made of stone resin. Measures 6" tall.
Distinguished by diamond patterns, indigo blue stripes, and dyed red yarns, Navajo Chief blankets are the most recognizable and valuable of all Navajo weavings. Prized and traded for by wealthy and powerful members of Plains Tribes long before the white man set foot on the land that became known as America, they were especially valued as saddle blankets, where they communicated the tribal status and rank of the rider.
