This is everything you would hope for in a rattle. The handle is made soft, and at a great diameter for firm and easy holding. The hide of the rattle is filled with Sacred Creek Rock Fill, in just the right proportion to make a full, pleasing and powerful sound with every shake. The craftsmanship is wonderful. Ever bit of it, including the artwork is handmade by a Native maker and Shaman, a member of a Cree tribe in Northern Canada. It is 9-10 inch length, so it is easy to transport and carry.
The artwork depicts the Great Healing Bear, Shaman Spirit, with Southern Inspired Symbols on his ethereal body. He walks with the sun, on his Sacred path, blessing the people of the Earth as he walks from sunrise to sundown.
