moenkopi F -=- Moenkopi Vest -=-

100% wool, naturally hand-dyed yarn. This design was taken from rock art in the vicinity of Holbrook and Winslow, Arizona. The Little Colorado River was the home to the Hopi people before their move north to the Mesas. During Pueblo III and IV times, considerable rock art was placed on Moenkopi and Sonsela sandstone outcrops. In addition to Corn, there is a bas-relief image of a large Dog which came from a pictograph in San Rafael Swell, Utah from close to 2,000 years ago. SOLD
