Description: After a decline in the Navajo rug market during the Great Depression(comma) a revival period brought back stylized classic designs without borders made with vegetable dyed wools. One of the regional styles to develop during this period(comma) starting in the 1940's(comma) was the Wide Ruins type. Rugs made in this style are characterized by a complex and finely woven wide three banded pattern. These two examples were woven by Ellen Smith [a](comma) a master weaver(comma) and her granddaughter Angie Smith [b] (14 at the time). They were both entered in the 1961 Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup(comma) NM(comma) where Ellen Smith won a special award and Angie Smith won second prize in the juvenile division. Both rugs are made of natural dyed wools.
