Two Grey Hills rug by Teresa Foster (Navajo)
The Whirling Log symbol is not associated with the Swastika and pre-dates WWII. Long before its appearance in WWII, the Whirling Log symbol has been seen as a symbol of healing, protection, and well-being not only by the Navajo people, but also by inhabitants of ancient India, Tibet, and many cultures across Asia. The Whirling Log symbol comes from a Navajo folk tale and is considered to represent well-being and good luck.
Two Grey Hills rugs are typically woven with natural colored wool in white, black and shades of brown. These rugs are usually much finer in yarn and weaving and take much more time to make. These rugs often have a border and the patterns tend to be more complicated than similar rugs such as Ganado or Klagetoh. The name of the design does not represent hills. The design is named for a village in New Mexico.
