Navajo Indian Rug - SC3816CThis is an excellent Navajo Storm Pattern rug-most likely from the Western part of the Reservation. It is a very nice specimen of the Storm Pattern textile. The central square, rendered in white natural wool, represents the Navajo Reservation and the four boxes at the extremities represent the four sacred mountains of the Reservation. The grey design at each end of the rug is defined as a "water bug." The zigzag elements emanating from the central square represent lightning.
