This is a very early Yei Be Chei weaving, depicting the Male & Female (Males round head, females square) Yei Be Chei Dancers with feathers, Rainbow Bars and the unusual stylized 1939 date woven in at the bottom. The date 1939 would indicate this was a piece commissioned for a special occasion and since the World's Fair was in 1939 we are attributing it to just that. Also, to back up this assumption there was a contest for weaving at the San Francisco World's Fair (held simultaneously to the NY Worlds Fair). All hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wool.
