Navajo sandpaintings have been used for religious and healing ceremonies for hundreds of years. The traditional designs have specific meanings and symbols that represent various things in our world: like water, corn, and animals. In recent years, there have been artisans who have taken sandpainting to a more contemporary art form. Navajo artisan Bilson Kee is one who has done that. This is an original painting of his, but he has also done numerous modern sandpaintings over the years. His work has become difficult to find, but when we do find it, they go fast!
Lui Escoto is a very unique artisan. For over a decade, he has made these hand crafted wire sculptures. The subject matter of these has been mostly Native American and Western. This hoop dancer has always been a favorite. If you covet a conversation piece for your home, this is a must have.
