These Pendleton blankets are robe size, which is the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. These blankets fit perfectly over a double bed, can be used for wall hangings or just for cuddling up on the sofa.
Baskets and incised feathers are motifs often found on the Navajo wedding vase. The potter sings and prays while forming clay from Mother Earth into this vessel with two spouts joined by a handle: two becoming one. The vase holds nectar and water, sweet enough to carry a couple into the afterlife. During the Unity Ceremony, each will sip separately, then together, pledging to travel one path. Great blessings come to those who drink together from the wedding vase without spilling a single drop. Napped
