Navajo rugs are unique
because their warp (the vertical
strings on a loom) is one long,
continuous piece of wool thread.
Once the warp is set on the
loom, the size of the rug cannot
be altered. This weaving meth-
od requires the weaver to plan
the design and pattern of the
rug to fit precisely into the pre-
determined length of the rug.
The ability to conceive and
execute two-dimensional
designs in extraordinary pat-
terns and colors set Navajo
weavers apart from the cre-
ators of other Native American
rugs and blankets. Knowledge
of this traditional process is an
important cultural tradition

As this show allows only early

with Eighteenth Century English

Windsor, Conn., offered a collec-

religious jewelry; and Donna

included an assortment of Victo-

Tony Gallick, an antiques
collector, spotted the trunk at
a recent estate sale. He said,
“While the man was overseas
in the 1940s, his wife kept
busy by shopping yard and
estate sales. The house was
covered floor-to-ceiling with
boxes. They moved often as he
was reassigned. She bought
the trunk and it stayed in
storage for decades. I saw it,
thought it was pretty cool, and
paid $10 for it.”

When Gallick first laid eyes
on the flash sheets, he knew
they were rare and important.
“I didn’t know the artist, but I
knew they were highly collect-
ible,” he said. “I did research
for about two months. The
1908 date on one design was
my starting point. There were
only a handful of tattoo artists
at the turn of the century. The
flash of ships and sailors lead
me to research port cities.”

That brought Gallick to New
York and the Bowery, then to

O’Reilly. “They were working
together for a decade until
Sam’s death in 1909,” Gallick
pointed out. “When Sam died,

heavily on his knowledge of oral and written

Behemoth in the Old Testament. While Dye’s
references to literary myth and fable are

will be exhibited alongside Dye’s drawings,

“Exploring the Myths” is co-curated by Nancy
Kathryn Burns, the museum’s associate cura-
