THE SWASTIKA

Native American Art - - EVENT PREVIEW -

— His­tor­i­cally this was a pow­er­ful and pos­i­tive sym­bol, lit­er­ally mean­ing “well-be­ing” in the an­cient San­skrit lan­guage. A wor­thy suc­ces­sor to Pro­fes­sor Aigner’s pre­vi­ous book on the sub­ject, The Swastika Sym­bol in Navajo Textiles, The Swastika Mo­tif traces the early ori­gins of the swastika and its cul­tural sig­nif­i­cance, through its use in ori­en­tal rugs and textiles, to its ul­ti­mate adop­tion as a de­sign ele­ment in Navajo weav­ing and other Na­tive Amer­i­can crafts — bead­work, bas­kets, pot­tery and jew­elry. It in­cludes an ex­ten­sive bib­li­og­ra­phy and an ap­pen­dix on Navajo bor­der de­signs. Avail­able through Ama­zon or di­rectly from the pub­lisher for $75 plus $5 ship­ping and han­dling within the 50 states.
