Sandpainting Style Navajo Rugs

Navajo Sand Painting Rugs

Sandpainting rugs are rugs where the design does have meaning. They are woven copies of the actual sandpaintings done in the sand by a medicine person. The healing ceremonies are called Ways and could include up to 8 sand paintings done over a period of several nights. A Yei rug will use a figure from a sand painting but it has no meaning by itself.
