this is a piece that i did to celebrate the unique artistry that is found in the creation of navajo rugs -- whereas the pattern is mine, i have tried to mirror the simplicity and power that you see in the patterns of the southwest -- using carpet warp that has been woven to surround the triangles of handmade paper, i have tried to pull in the image of the desert - the beauty of the sand and mountains -- wrapped element extends from these mountain images and from these elements sprout raffia - the raffia is indicative of the desert plants that somehow survive the harsh climate -- all in all a joyous celebration that shows the beauty and tenacity of the desert southwest and the visuals that are inherent there -- i hava added a close up to increase the visual experience for you
