Description

Navajo handwoven Yei rug woven by Marie Shirley. Yei rugs are tall, elongated spirits which represent protection. In each hand they are holding prayer sticks. In a properly conducted ceremony it is believed to restore mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health; between the Yei's cornstalks, feathers and arrows may appear, and a Rainbow Guardian often surrounds and protects the figures on three sides. Usually, the long body of the “rainbow yei” surrounds them .This particular rug is decorated with a single Yei figure and has been woven with commercially dyed wool which the weaver has re-washed and re-spun.
