Oljediné means Navajo Moon in Diné, or Navajo language. Farnsworth shows us a proud and iconic Navajo woman wrapped in a Pendleton blanket, ubiquitous among Native American Tribes. A full moon shines in the twilight above a typical Southwestern landscape. This is the latest in a series of Navajo women in a Pendleton blanket that Farnsworth been developing. Upon returning home to the Flagstaff area after being in the service, Farnsworth saw a Navajo woman walk by with a blanket and hand-tooled leather bag and his heart told him he was home. This experience, among others, deepened his love for the Navajo and Hopi people and their rich culture.
