Having a look at some Native American Sand Work – The Artsology Weblog

I obtained an e mail from a reader of the weblog who despatched the next photos of some Native American sand artwork that he has in his possession. He defined, “I don’t understand how outdated they’re, my father-in-law collected some Navajo Sand Artwork, and I inherited them when he handed. He had them for over 20 years.” He hoped Artsology may give him extra data on these items, however I needed to admit that whereas I’ve a primary understanding of sand artwork, I’m not an knowledgeable in these items so far as giving any form of formal evaluation of what he has. I did say that I might share the photographs, and if anybody on the market has any expertise or scholarly data on Native American Navajo Sand Artwork, we hope that somebody will share what they know within the feedback part beneath. Right here’s the primary one:
