Medicine Man Sandpainting by Tom Clark, Navajo


Stock Level: 1

Product Information

Medicine Man sandpainting 12" X 12", walnut frame 21" X 21" with special cuts on the four mats.  Made by Navajo artist Tom Clark from Kirkland, New Mexico.

The sandpaintings originate from Navajo healing ceremonies.  The medicine man builds a sandpainting  for the ceremony and when the ceremony is over, the sandpainting is destroyed, thereby destroying the illness.  This  amazing detailed and complex Navajo symbol of healing has been broadened into a unique art form to be appreciated by many.

Sandpaintings are very detailed and colorful and have designs made up of many subjects familiar to the Navajo people.  Colors used in the sandpainting contain every color of the rainbow and are made from many different sources such as colored rocks, roots, flowers, sand, bark, ashes and cactus.  For example, the colors green and blue can be made from mineral ores, red and orange from flower petals and yellow from cornmeal.
