Sand painting has its origin in the healing ceremony of the American Indian's Medicine Man. The Medicine Man would lie an injured, sick or troubled tribal member on the ground and create a picture using colored sand around the person. The sick or injured person was at the center of the painting, in an attempt to draw out what ever was causing the sick or injured persons problem. Once the Medicine man was finished with his work of creating his image, or 'sand painting', members of the tribe would remove the sick person and the images in the sand would be destroyed, in an attempt to destroy whatever was ailing the person.
Our Sand paintings are signed or initialed by the Artist who created the item (excluding two 12 inch unframed) and many paintings have the Artists picture on the back as well.
