Notes: 
Storm pattern Navajo Rug, c-1930 in excellent condition. The Storm Pattern is not built around a central diamond, but is a very recognizable geometric composition with a strong, often rectangular central element connected by diagonal stepped lines to elements in each of the four corners. This design is said to be highly symbolic and associated with the all-important rainstorms in the growing season. Individual components include representations of the Navajos’ four sacred mountains, lightning bolts, snowflakes and water-bugs. Storm Pattern rugs are woven in an unlimited variety of colors.
