|The finished piece, from the Navajo perspective, is merely the vehicle whereby beauty, hozho, is transmitted from an artist who is in a state of beauty, to a recipient or audience.
The end result is that the receiver will also be brought into a state of beauty through viewing, wearing or appreciating what the artist has created.
