I wish I knew more about it:

Who owns the building/mural?
Who was the artist?
What was the thinking/rationale in creating it?

For now, I'll just admire it!

I noticed on the right side, a Navajo woman weaving a wool blanket too. There are annual blanket-rug sale shows in the Navajo reservation, one place called Toadlena Trading Post in New Mexico. The organizers usually bring a famous Native American artist, actor/actress/musician(s) ete to the show, and the blankets-rugs sell anywhere from a few hundred to many thousands of $$$. I like this mural!
