The body of the drum is painted in alternating colors of deep red and cornflower blue with the upper head showing a particularly well-executed painted image of a warrior eagle. The patina on the entire piece shows outstanding character, use and wear. The painted drum head is significant in imagery as in Native cultures the eagle is revered as a symbol of wisdom, strength of vision and heart, and higher consciousness. The drum can be played on either the painted or unpainted side as each side has a tonal quality designed to achieve different musical effects throughout the course of a ritualistic dance. It is thought that as the drum tones created a higher pitch and faster rhythm, dancers were motivated to move with more verve causing a profound and fluid connection to the spirit world. The paint on the drum consists of natural pigments extracted from red clays, roots, berries, limestone, barks, charcoal, plants and moss. This drum is in outstanding original condition and would be a gem for any serious collector of the American Native arts. less
