Navajo 19cm Rawhide Drum Shaped Rattle.

Hand-crafted and hand-painted Native American rattle by Navajo artist Lena Saunders from Sweetwater, Arizona.

Beautifully shaped like a traditional drum with an antiqued look.

The wooden handle is covered with antiqued leather and beadwork, a metal bead and metal wrapped horse hair.

It is very well made with the head firmly attached to the handle and has a good sound.

 

Native American rattles are also known as shakers and play an important part in traditional tribal dance and in ceremony.

 

They are symbolically made using hide and feathers from the animal kingdom, wood and stones from the plant/earth kingdom and hand painted with traditional symbols from tribal lore or mythology to give them added power.

 

Rattles are used to hold the rhythm during dance, raise the energy and carry prayers and are often accompanied by a beaten drum.

 

Native American rattles are also used in shamanic work to call upon the sprits from other realms for help and guidance. The sustained use of a rattle can create trance-like states in the user and listeners.

 

Use them personally when you wish to create a sacred space, raise the energy before spiritual work or to clear your mind before entering a meditative state. Or use purely as a percussion instrument to accompany a musical performance.

 

This rattle measures approx 19cm excluding the plaited rawhide hanger and the drum shaped head is approx 4.5cm in diameter.

 

Comes to you wrapped in our signature pale blue tissue paper.
