Navajo rugs connect threads across generations. For Navajo artist Etta Claw Peacock, who took the second place award at this year’s Indian Art Market, her lifetime’s experience weaving is a tie back to her mother.
“These came down from my mom, my mother’s designs,” she says of the handwoven rug she brought to the Art Market. Made from one hundred percent wool and colored with all her own natural dyes, the piece represents medicine men gathered to heal their patient. This particular rug took three months to create, she says, but its significance reaches much further through time.
