Tohatchi, N.Mex.

12 inches by 6 inches. The longer N.Mex. state abbreviation assists us in estimating the age of this very nice sand painting as the early 1960's or possibly earlier. The 2 letter state abbreviations became Postal standard in 1963. A very nice earlier Sand Painting!

yeibeichai (YAY-beh-shay) definition:
spirits with influence over the natural and human worlds
