“ENCHANTED YEI,” Original painting by Navajo artist Allen Bahe
Allen Bahe, Shonto Arizona, paints Navajo tradition in a fascinating and visually stunning way.
His trademark Navajo Yeii figures, often wrapped in blankets, continue to be his first artistic love and his most consistent theme.
There is a story behind wrapping the Yeii. Tribal elders consider showing exact images of the traditional dress and body paint somewhat sacrilegious, therefore, the use of the blanket covering sensitive details made the work more palatable to the elders.
