Even though it's entitled "Brats," this small Navajo weaving by Pamela Brown makes the perfect display for your jewelry collection with its muted colors of undyed natural wool. Hello Instagram photos!

Pamela Brown is a master weaver, who specializes in Toadlena/Two Grey Hills pieces. Her handwoven art is part stream of consciousness and part comic book usually infused with lots of humor. Her weavings provide little vignettes of her life on the Navajo Nation.

This natural wool weaving is entitled "Brats" and tells the story of a time that Grandmother dealt with a naughty child. One day, Grandmother had a visitor who brought over a "troop" of children. One mischievous child was spying on the adults' private conversation by peeking through a keyhole in the closed door. To teach this impish boy a lesson, Pamela's grandmother poked a stick through the keyhole nearly hitting him in the eye. 

 "Brats" was originally purchased by Martha Struever at the historic Toadlena Trading Post and Museum. Marti fell in love with Pamela Brown's unusual style of weaving, steeped in the traditional but contemporary in its style of storytelling.

The weaving measures just 8" x 1" and comes with its original Toadlena tag attached. If you watch this video from Voice of America, you'll see Toadlena Trading Post and Pamela Brown.
