3 Ways To Spruce Up Your Lifestyle with Navajo Art
Flaunting a perfect blend of traditional motifs with the modern trend, Navajo Indian art came under the notice of the Europeans in 1581 when Spanish explorers arrived in the southwest region of North America. The spinning and weaving craft work that was initially used as trade coins now earned collector’s space as vibrant pieces of art. Be it Navajo coffee mugs, jewellery, or other Navajo print home decor items, here are 3 ways you can upgrade your lifestyle with Navajo artwork. 
Tumblr media
Turquoise and Silver
Silver and turquoise go hand-in-hand when it comes to the Navajo culture. They were the first southwestern American Indian group to work with silver. As time went on and silver jewellery became a staple in their culture, the tribal started using turquoise for embellishment. The colors within the stone are symbolic (black, blue, white, and green) used to represent the colors of the natural world. Besides their meaning, the classic and elegant appearance of this artifact can never go out of style.
Traditional motifs and Prints
Navajo culture is known for its extensive use of decorative, traditional motifs. Their use of natural elements often holds different meanings and symbolism. For instance, the bear symbolises power and strength. The Thunderbird acts as a soothsayer and a warning sign. These prints are unique and add a different element irrespective of their usage. They somewhat carry a bohemian vibe with themselves. In case you wish to flaunt a carefree attitude with your rather formal, plain outfit, Navajo accessories are a way to go.
Pottery
Pottery forms an integral part of the Navajo culture. The traditional people would light their pots on fire, then add a hot, melted pitch from the pinyon trees for a glossy finish. The modern Navajo Indian art on coffee mugs became popular due to this authentic aspect.
Regardless of the number of generations and its old history, the Navajo culture always seems to transcend through the timeline. This is probably one of the reasons why people have always been attracted to its craft and art over time. Chances are you might be owning a piece of jewellery without even realising its roots. With the advent of technology and consumer awareness, Navajo art forms have definitely become more commercialised and gained mainstream attention.
In case you are an artist yourself willing to showcase your skill and craft, visit Navajo artisan opportunities.
