Eleanor Yazzie is a well-recognized Navajo textile artist. Her weavings have been the focus of several publications and displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Eleanor’s example of a Storm Pattern design displays the center of the Navajo Universe, along with the four sacred mountains, thunder, lightning, prayer feathers, rain clouds, and water bugs. This rug is an excellent contemporary example of a traditional pattern.


About the artist:

Navajo Rug Weaver Eleanor Yazzie

Eleanor was born in 1963 at Keams Canyon, Arizona to Joe and Ella Benally. She has two sisters and five brothers. When visiting her grandmother on her mother's side who lived at Smoke Signal, she would watch her weave. Her grandmother, Bah Begay, especially loved weaving storm pattern rugs. Eleanor helped her grandmother who, at that time, made handspun rugs. Eleanor learned every step from shearing the sheep to washing and dyeing the wool to spinning the yarn. Because her grandmother especially loved the storm pattern weavings, this style was the first type woven by Eleanor. Her mastery of complex geometrics and diagonal lines comes from this experience in weaving the storm pattern.
