New Mexico Navajo Woman Using Primitive Loom to Weave a Blanket (Profile View)

New Mexico Navajo Woman Using Primitive Loom to Weave a Blanket (Profile View)

A Navajo Indian doll is sitting on a wood slab, covered with a woven blanket. She is weaving another blanket on a very primitive loom. The woman is wearing colorful, woven clothing and head scarf. Her face is embroidered on her cloth body. An infant is in a papoose beside her, and she has a basket made from an acorn shell. The figure stands 4 (10 cm) inches tall.
