Sandpainting Style Navajo 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.
