Navajo weaver Doris Duncan makes some of the most precise and attractive Storm Pattern rugs available. They are clean, symmetrical, and have outstanding eye appeal. What looks to be a simple, straight-forward design is much more complex. The imagery is based on some of the most elemental symbolism of Navajo culture. The awakening of the Navajo consciousness is the main theme. There is the center of the Navajo universe; thunder bolts and lightning, rain and water bugs are portrayed, as well. Each element is based in the natural world and is deified. These higher powers have the ability to effect humans in a positive and productive manner.

It was called ni tqin'kae tsosi, fine fiber cotton (Indian hemp). There were two persons who brought the seed of that plant, they were spiders. They said that the people were to use the plant instead of skins for their clothing. So this seed was planted in the earth? More about this legend
