Description

This is a  stately drum with wonderful tonal qualities and looks wonderful standing alone or as an end table.

People all over the world have listened to the heart beat of the drum. Perhaps no other people have attached a greater significance to the Spirit of the Drum than the Native American. The drum has played an inherent role in the lives of North America for centuries. Prior to battle, they would beat the drum with strength and solidarity. They expressed their deep emotional and spiritual awareness through ceremonial dances accompanied by the pulsating drum. The Native American art of drum making in the Pueblos is an age old tradition. Drum frames are made of cottonwood, aspen, or pine. Drum rawhides are made from cow, deer, elk, or goat hides. Each drum has its own distinctive voice.

Condition: Excellent- original condition
Provenance: Acquired from my family’s private collection in Texas.
