This intriquing "Yei" decorated rug is strongly representative of Navajo ceremonies centered on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. The "Holy People" portrayed in the Yei weavings communicate between the Navajo people and their Gods and are believed to restore health and spiritual well being when called upon in a properly conducted ceremony. The stylized woven figures typically carry rattles, pine boughs or yucca strips. Have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
