Weaving is the art form for which the Navajo are best known, and the finely woven textiles from the Two Grey Hills region in New Mexico--characterized by geometric designs executed in natural shades of hand-spun wool yarns with wide or multiple borders-are highly esteemed. Daisy Taugelchee ( 191 1-1990), who set unprecedented standards of fine spinning and weaving, made this stellar tapestry in the late 1940s.
