Footnotes

  • "The majority of Navajo blankets are symmetrical in color and design. This double saddle blanket exhibits a series of diagonal stripes set against an orange (sic) field. Anchored by the broad orange (sic) band at top and bottom, this shimmering, asymmetrical composition is unusual and eye-catching."

    Taken from A NEW MEXICO ART TRADITION, published by the Silverman Museum Collection, text by Joshua Baer, Frank Harlow and Jack Silverman, p. 8.
