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 depicts on it the "Cosmic Bear". According to the maker the Cosmic Bear "is the Spirit, the totem, the Grandfather, the Grandmother. He is pure Spirit being created by the Creator since before Creation. An ancient being, powerful and respect among others. He manages armies of other Bear Spirits, and is loved. He is strict in his teachings and manner. He walks with the sun, blessing the Earth, and brings in the night sun (moon). The cosmos is seen in his ethereal body, the stars, and his constellation. His den is represented by the sweatlodge, inside the Earth, like a mother’s womb. Bringing healing, restoration, love, and transformation."
