Excellent new condition with no cracks, breaks, dings or stains. Sand paintings are made by sprinkling dry sand colored with natural pigments onto a board or on the ground for ceremonial purposes to heal the sick. It is believed that sand paintings allow the patient to absorb the powers depicted in the grains of sand. The pigment colors used by the Navajo are gathered in the surrounding desert. It is mostly colored sandstone, which is then ground to form a fine powder.The colors are mostly red, brown, and ochre-yellow because these are the colors found in sandstone within the tribal areas. They usually include crushed charcoal mixed with sand to produce the color black. They sometimes add yellow cornmeal, pollen from plants, and crushed flowers to the sand paintings.
