Sandpaintings

Collection of traditional Navajo sandpaintings. Originally sandpaintings were created by the medicine man on the ground of a hogan and the colored sands were used in different ceremonies with over 600 traditional designs. Today, they are a way to remember and honor this sacred custom of the Navajo people.
