9'x12' Two Grey Hills Navajo Weaving
Cecil Flanery (who passed away recently) and his wife Mari (Foutz) Flanery donated this outstanding Two Grey Hills Navajo weaving which was woven in 1978 by Dorothy Francis of Mexican Water, AZ. The rug is 9'x12' and is finely woven in all natural colors: grey, white, black, and brown. Its amazing double borders frame the traditional Two Grey Hills pattern. The rug contains woven corner patterns that accent the precise square corners. It has never been used on the floor or hung and is it mint condition. The weaving is a significant contribution to the Farmington Museum's growing Navajo Weavings collection. We would like to thank the Flanerys for their wonderful gift. The Museum plans to install the weaving in the Trading Post Exhibit by the end of January.
The Flanery family would also like to announce that any additional memorials given in Cecil's name should be given or sent to the Farmington Museum Foundation, PO Box 115, Farmington, NM 87499. For more information please call (505)599-1180.
