SandPaintings of the Navajo Shooting Chant by Newcomb & Reichard
SandPaintings of the Navajo Shooting Chant by Newcomb & Reichard
    Quantity in Basket: None
    Code: B01/12
    Price: $13.95
    Includes 45 illustrations, 35 in full color. This classic of ethnology reproduces sandpaintings of the Navajo Shooting Chant, one of the most important and most complex of the Navajo healing ceremonies, together with a thorough description and explanation of the rites. It represents the first major attempt to cast these intricate works in permanent form and it remains the most informed analysis of their artistic and religious content and the symbolism and myth they express. The accompanying text describes the role of the Chants and chanter in Navajo culture, the details of the sandpainting ceremony, the composition and artistic devices of the sandpaintings and the myth of the two Divine Twins on which the Chant is based.
