Master Weaver Mary Ann Foster
by Master Weaver Mary Ann Foster
This sandpainting rug measures 60" x 61", all natural, hand-spun yarn by Master Weaver Mary Ann Foster.
Master Weaver Mary Ann Foster belongs in the elite group of Navajo sandpainting weavers. This includes Haastin Klah, Gladys Manuelito (Mrs. Sam), Mrs. King Tut and more.
Mary Ann has faithfully rendered traditional Navajo sandpainting images and her own creations. This creation by Mary Ann features a central corn stalk, the Navajo Tree of Life, flanked by two Humpback Fringe Mouth Yeis. The accoutrements and other elements are common to Navajo sandpaintings. The Toadlena Trading Post always looks forward to pieces by these living treasures.
Mary Ann and her Clan appear in Chapter 5:5, p. 200 of "The Master Weavers."
