The Raised Outline style of Navajo weaving is the most recent development in the art form, having started in the Coal Mine Mesa area about 50 years ago. The style is named for its unusual technique when the weaver alternates a single weft thread containing two contrasting colors. One side of the weaving shows a series of raised ridges, while the other side is smooth, with both sides displaying the same pattern. This tapestry was made by an unknown weaver and features a cornstalk and arrow in one corner and an Anhinga, or peyote water bird, on the opposite side.
