In Navajo culture, "Father Sky" and "Mother Earth" represent the harmonious balance of the universe. They are often depicted as central figures in sand paintings, reflecting the Navajo belief in interconnectedness and reverence for nature. Father Sky is associated with masculine energy, rain, and celestial bodies, while Mother Earth symbolizes fertility, connection to nature, and the cycles of life. In healing ceremonies, sand paintings featuring these deities are believed to bring balance and blessings for health and well-being.
