NO BEATER WITH THIS DRUM SALE IS FOR DRUM ALONE! Drum beaters for sale in another listing, if you purchase a beater with this drum it will ship for free (message me to get your shipping on it refunded) To make a drum is a very long process. First I have to find a hunter who harvests the deer/elk for its meat in a respectful way. Then I flesh the hide and take it to the river where I soak it until the hair falls off. Next I stretch the hide and pray with it. Then I cut the rawhide heads and soak them and the rawhide lace. Then I tie the drums and hang them in trees to dry. A few days later I am able to paint each drum. Each drum is a living guest in your home. When they get to hot they tighten and can crack, if they get to cold they soften and wont play. These drums I make have a spirit. They should be treated as a guest in your home. Place in an area where they will be comfortable, do not place them face down (disrespectful) they are not to be hung on the wall as the energy will drain out (walls are for decorations) I was taught that the drum is a part of all cultures around the world. When we come into this world we have our drum and our flute and when we leave this world we take our drum and our flute (meaning voice and heartbeat) Each drum is unique and tells a story. Drum size: 15" Head: Deer Rawhide Story origin: Cherokee Drum Meaning: Snakes stand for constant change, be careful what you ask for when you use this drum... Change is not always fun.

I have personally painted the artwork on this drum.
