Helena Begay is one of those artists that lives to weave, and weaves some of the most creative Navajo rugs ever. Helena’s ability to work her warp and weft into smooth curves and unusual forms is beyond the scope of most weavers. With supreme confidence and an unusual vision on the world of the weaving arts, Helena creates a masterpiece each time she sets up her loom. In this case, Helena has teamed up with watercolorist Serena Supplee to create this unique interpretation of an Ancestral Pueblo rock-built ruin with a twinkling star viewed through the key hole door. A vision from the past as viewed by artists near and dear to the archaeology of southeastern Utah.
