This rug measures 37" x 64" by Master Weaver Ruth Teller, c. 1970's. It appears in "The Master Weavers" on p. 365, Plate 139.
Ruth was born in 1927. Her mother, Susie Tom, is a Master Weaver. Her sister, Margaret Yazzie, is a Master Weaver as are her two half sisters, Evelyn George and Mary Louise Gould. This is a formidable weaving family!
This rug (72 wefts per inch) displays a simple elegance that belies a confident artist.
