Navajo weaving in the Teec Nos Pos style woven by Gilbert Begay. Gilbert is from the Red Valley area of the Navajo Reservation. This weaving was originally purchased at the Crownpoint Rug Auction in the 1980's and has the original tag. Teec Nos Pos, a Navajo place-name meaning ‘Ring of Cottonwood Trees,’ is a northeastern Arizona community. Two distinctive styles emerged here one with bold geometric motifs and the other with an allover pattern of finely outlined zigzags. Teec Nos Pos rugs tend to be large and bold. Oriental carpet influences hooks, frets and other filler elements are prominent.
