Sand P
ainting Weavings portray the spiritual side of Navajo li
and are so
mewhat controversial. They and are close, but not
literal depicti
ons of an actual sand painting used in sacred
ceremonies.
Nevertheless, they dep
ict spirits of earth and sky, and the color
used have real significan
ce. Again, you can clearly observe th
four segments in the weaving
.
An old medicine man, Hosteen Kla
h, may have been the first to
translate his actual sand paintings in
to wool.
