This Mountain Majesty design was inspired by Navajo hand weaving created in the Southwest circa 1920-1940. Pendleton has woven into the pattern a host of positive, Native American-inspired symbols. Terraced steps reference the mountains we climb in life's journey to reach the clouds and sky above. Big mountains are symbols of abundance. Motifs in the central stripe may be interpreted as saddlebags for a journey up and over the mountains. Diamonds may signify the four mountains sacred to the Navajo. Centered on these traditional diamond geometrics are butterfly-like images, uplifting symbols of hope and life. Some believe that butterflies can deliver a wish up to the Great Spirits. Inspirational symbols are complemented by quiet colors that evoke the evening light of a Western landscape and the faded hues of a vintage Old Glory.
