Sand Art: An Intricately Beautiful Artform

Some years back, we had the pleasure of touring the Grand Canyon and the desert country in the southwest part of the United States.  I stopped at this one small Trading Post, and found these two pieces of exquisitely rendered stick-figures in the sandart tradition.  They are signed and dated by a Native American artist in 1968.  I display them with great fondness for the unique art form that they represent, as well as for the beautiful memories from that trip.  Enjoy!
