This eyedazzler blanket illustrates the continuity of tradition along with innovation that occurred when commercial wools became available to the best weavers . The weaver incorporates the central band of linked diamonds flanked by half diamonds that is often seen in Classic Navajo serapes. However, in this blanket, the design has been significantly enlarged, which creates a new aesthetic.
