Every creature, every aspect of nature has its Holy People. To honor them, Navajo weavers work them into their textiles. This 1960s rug is handmade. Every aspect of its creation is of the land and by the hand. The design depicts the Holy People; the Yei-be-chei were gifted by the gods to guard and protect the Navajo people from harm and disease. Blessings are bestowed upon the weaver and their family if the Yeis are pleased with the outcome. There must have come much pleasure and blessings when the Holy People saw this wonderful rug.
