This piece is a tribute to the weavers of La Centinela. It is Irvin, Lisa, and Jake Trujillo, father to Irvin. It is very traditional in some ways, mainly the vertical border and the center diamond. But the work before and after the center diamond, as well as the use of circles, is a touch that Irvin brings new to this piece. This type of handwoven wool blanket is commonly used as a wall hanging, or draped over the back of a couch. This piece has natural dyed blue as a background color and rusts, reds, tans, light browns, greens, natural included in its design. It uses natural dyes, which means that yarn in this piece uses dyes that were obtained from flowers, leaves, wood, or insects. It was woven by Irvin Trujillo who is a seventh-generation weaver, 2007 NEA National Heritage Fellow, and recurring Spanish Market top award winner. It measures approximately 48 by 72 inches.
