Product Description: This is a handmade, hand painting medicine rattle made by a Cree artisan living in Nevada (though originally out of Northern Canada). He has made rattles for ceremony from a young age. These rattles are exquisite works of art, and is the artisan’s Sacred Art and part of his life’s purpose. This is everything you would want in a rattle. The handle is made soft, and at a great diameter for firm and easy holding. The rawhide 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 paintings are incredibly detailed, and rich with symbolic meaning. We truly recommend these rattles to anybody and everyone.
This rattle in particular is adorned with a painted representation of a turtle with four directions carried on its shell.
