Small Traditional Pueblo Drum Resized

Taos Pueblo master drum maker Lee Lujan gives voice to the earth’s own heartbeat with this small traditional Pueblo drum. Made in the old way, it’s summoned from a single unbroken length of cottonwood trunk, whole and complete with no fitted pieces. each side is covered with rawhide, tanned, stretched, and dried in the old way, the two covers laced together by hand with lengths of heavy sinew. The excess lace is used to fashion a pair of traditional handles, one at either side, top and bottom, and a small loop to hold the beater. The beater itself is made from a slender branch, stripped of bark and chosen for balance, one end padded, covered in soft white deerhide, and laced securely together. Drum stands 15.25″ high by 10″ across at its widest point.

Cottonwood; rawhide; sinew; deerhide
