The upcoming collection presented by R.G Munn Auctions offers a diversified lot originating from American Indian tribes such as Crow Indians, Hopi Indians and more. The items available from each tribe are distinct as they inherit mystical and cultural beliefs. One such item from the late 20th century is a handwoven sandpainting textile, that represents the colorful style of Navajo Indians. According to the Navajo Tourism Department, “Navajo women believed the art of weaving was taught by Spider-Woman, who constructed a loom according to directions given by the Holy People.”.
Whilst exploring the collection, one can also find potteries from the Hopi Indians. In the “Book of the Hopi”, American writer Frank Waters says that Hopi tribe “regard themselves as the first inhabitants of America”. One item available from the tribe is a hand coiled and painted parrot design pottery. Also of interest is a hand-carved and painted cottonwood of Kachina (a spirit being in the religious beliefs of the Pueblo peoples). To find more on the available items, visit R.G Munn Auctions.
