Sandpainting - Yei Rainbow : Historic : GHT 2123

Product Description

This is a very early Sandpainting weaving. The one large Yei surrounding the inner 4 figures is the Rainbow Yei.  The inner Yei figures are female (because of their square heads) and are holding up Medicine Pouches and Bows with stylized feathers on the ends. Within each Medicine Pouch is a stylized Rainbow Bar. Rainbows are a symbol of all good things and happiness to the Navajo.

The original Ceremonial Sandpainting Drawings were done with colored sand by the Navajo Medicine Men when performing a healing ceremony, after the ceremony he would collect the sands together and distribute them in the 4 sacred directions.  Very few weavers would depict the Sandpaintings in a permanent weaving format, and only after a special ceremony is performed, giving them permission to do so.

All hand-carded, hand-spun, and Hand-dyed native wool.  The black is from the first shearing of black lambs less than a year old, and from their underbelly.  This weaving has many desirable color shifts, because of the hand-carding, and weaving lines which add dimension and character to the weaving.
