In this clear, brief, yet profoundly informed text, Mark Bahti reviews the history of the sandpaintingfrom its original, and continuing, sacred purpose to the purely artistic creations produced and sold by some sandpainting artists today. With his collaborator, Eugene Baatsoslanii Joe, Bahti explains the meanings of the images and colors in sandpaintings and tells some of the traditional stories that they represent.Navajo Sandpaintingswill enlighten both the amateur and the connoisseur of Navajo art.
