"Authentic Navajo Sandpainting" (2957)

Sandpaintings originate from Navajo healing ceremonies. The medicine man builds a Sandpainting and places the patient in the middle of it. To aid in the healing process, sand from the painting is rubbed over certain parts of the patient's body. When the ceremony is over, Sandpainting is destroyed, thereby destroying the illness.
This Navajo symbol of healing is now appreciated as a work of art.
