The Santa Fe Indian Market showcases over 1,000 Native American artists each year and they compete to see who is the best. Only one, however, can be named best of show.

This year the best of show award went to weaver Lola Cody, Diné, who entered “Sands of Noah Mesa."

Cody, who stands a little over five feet, is towered over by her 8 by 13 feet rug. It is designed in the Two Grey Hills style and took Cody over two years to complete.
