Sand paintings

Sand painting Navajo, medicine man, ceremonies

Made by the Navajo medicine men, sand paintings are usually produced at the center of the Hogan (ceremonial structure) in order to heal or keep away the evil spirits, to reconcile the Earth and the Sky, and to harmonize our original senses. In pigments of stone or sand of various colors, this ephemeral art of religious ceremonies takes on philosophical shapes which, following traditions, are made at dawn and destroyed before sunset.
