Think about It
Almost all Navajo pictorial weavings depict objects or scenes that are common on the native lands. This one shows “Tsé Bit' a'í”, or rock with wings. Better known by its Anglo name, Shiprock is situated on the Navajo Reservation and sacred to the Diné’s culture. For centuries it was only seen by American Indians. Today it is a well-known landmark of the American Southwest.

You can see this weaving and others in the exhibition “Navajo Weavings: Adapting Tradition” at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.Learn More
