Product Description: The 16” 6 sided Hexagonal Deer Hide Drum is made by our main drum maker, who is part of the Maidu Nation. The drum has a clear base note, with some higher frequencies as well, to create a clear low toned note. The drum is offered with our Sunreed Soft Beater to bring out the softest lowest notes of the drum. It is hand painted by our drum artist Dorothy Stone, who was inspired to create the Bee Drum in line with the Sacred Feminine.
Cultures around the world honor the Bee, its Queen and her incredible community of harmonious workers, all aligned with common purpose, as well as the powerful 6 sided structures in its hives, known in the world of Sacred Geometry, as one of the most profound building blocks of nature, incorporating the mysteries of the Hexagon, as seen in the molecular structure of carbon, the eye of a dragonfly, the cooling of volcanic basalt, the poles of Saturn, and so much more throughout all of Nature. The mysteries of the Hexagon evolve into that of the Star Tetrahedron, a sacred symbol of the combined forces of the Sacred Feminine and Masculine in perfect union throughout the world, seen in the Sri Yantra (symbolizing the union of Shiva/Shakti,) the Star of David, the Merkaba of ancient Egypt, and so many other worldwide symbols. The Star Tetrahedron incorporates the six points or ‘corners’ of the Hexagon, and evolves further into the Flower of Life and Metatron’s Cube, from which all elemental structures of Life are born. These are the very foundations of modern science and math, taken from the ancient geometrists of Greece, who borrowed the knowledge from Egypt.
Throughout the Mediterranean regions, spiritual cultures arose, honoring the Divine Mother principle through the Bee and the Queen. The Bee brings fertility to the Earth, brings us our fruits, grains, and vegetables, spawns the tree kingdoms, thus brings us health, wealth, nourishment, and vitality. The Bee is a teacher of community living, sharing with all equally. The Celts and others saw her as keeper of secret knowledge and wisdom, even a carrier into other worlds for gathering of deeper riches and wisdom, even as her colony gathers the nectars of this world. Remnants of those Priestess cultures survive today.
At Sunreed, we have always honored the wisdom of all spiritual traditions. We recognize and honor the New Emergence of the wisdom of the Sacred Feminine during these times of great transformation of our planet, and of all humanity. We have always incorporated relationship with the Sacred Feminine in our own work. And, we recognize and honor the power women have again been led to assume in our culture, the beauty of the wisdom of the carriers of these sacred traditions, and the need to restore integrity, balance and harmony in all levels of our society in regard to gender equality, honoring the Earth as a living aspect of the Sacred Feminine, of the incredible intuitive power of the Sacred Feminine, the quality of Life Force our emotional bodies carry, of which she births, and how we must all integrate this wisdom and power into our lives and essential being. The Wisdom of so many cultures state it thusly, though perhaps in different languages and sentence structure: The Nature of Life is to embody Right Relationship with our (higher/authentic) Self and the Principles of the Cosmos. Within the heart of those Principles, is the Heart of the Great Mother of All Life.
