It was Spider Woman who preserved the Dine (Navajo) people from the evils that surrounded them when they emerged into the Third-World. For this reason she became one of their most cherished Gods. It was also Spider Women who taught the Dine to weave. Spider Women told the Dine ancestors of the first weaving loom constructed by her husband. He made the cross poles of sky and earth cords; the warp sticks of sun rays, lengthwise to cross the woof; the healds of rock crystal and sheet lightning, to maintain the condition of the fibers. For the batten he choose a sun halo to seal the joints, and a comb of white shell to clean the strands.

This weaving is the work of the great Navajo weaver MARIE TISI. It measures 38X19 inches Marie used her personal STORM Pattern on this rug.  She used 7 natural colors when weaving this rug. This weaving is the perfect size for most coffee tables and would look great hanging on your wall or the back of your couch. I do not have a photo of Marie with this weaving. I have included a photo of Marie holding another weaving along with her sister Sarah. Marie is the Navajo lady on the left in the photo.

Marie comes from the Cedar Ridge area of the Navajo Nation. She is from the Tisi family well know for their great rugs.
