SAND PAINTING Sun Surrounded by Eagle Feathers by L. Yazzie. Good Condition:
Sand painting depicting the sun surrounded by eagle feathers. This small sand painting measures 6 inches by 9 inches (framed), and 2 3/4 inches by 6 inchesunframed. Artist is L(?) Yazzie per information on back. Based on name provided, I am unable to determine and confirm tribal affiliation.
This sand painting is in good condition. No damage seen on the painting itself. On back, there is about a 2-inch tear in the brown, backing paper(see photo). This tear has no impact on the sand painting itself and won't be seen if hung on the wall.
Background: Sand paintings are utilized by a healer. Eagle representations often are used in the healing of a sick child.Holy people come and go into the painting in response to the chanted request forintercession, absorbing the illness into the painting. At the end of the ceremony, the sand painting is destroyed.In artistic representations, such as this one,sacred symbols are used so as not to be disrespectful.
I pack carefully and ship promptly. Ships from a non-smoking home.
