TWO BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPH postcards of Native American Indian Navajo women. The photographs are dramatically done in blacks and cream color and the detail is gorgeous! The title of the first is "Navajo Weaver". The subject is a Navajo woman, sitting on card board at her weaving loom. Her loom has a partial " Yeibichai" weaving on it. The Yeibichai are an important part of the Navajo culture. On the weaving you can see that the supernatural beings are in a line and preforming a ceremony. The weaver is dressed in her traditional velvet blouse with silver buttons and a wide printed skirt. The second subject is simply titled "Navajo Indian Woman". Just a beautiful side view of the woman and she is wrapped in a striped serape. These women were photographed by an American photographer by the name of Laura Gilpin. She not only did wonderful portraits, but also did outstanding landscapes. She was born in 1891 and passed in 1979. I believe these photographs were taken in the 30's and later published in a book "The Enduring Navajo".
CONDITION: Both cards are unused. The only damage I see is the top left corner of the woman in the serape has a soft crease. Other than that there is slight yellow aging on the back of the cards. Absolutely no odors. These would be beautiful matted and framed together.
