This is one of the rugs up for auction bidders.
Many others awaited their turn to go under the gavel.
Other items at the auction were Hopi Katsina (kachina) dolls, baskets, pottery and even a Native American cradle board for carrying an infant on her mother's back.
This beautiful "story pot" sold for $475 after some spirited bidding.
The auctioneer said many of the prices were far below true value so the successful bidders went away with smiles on their faces.
