condition: excellent
This large drum was purchased in Taos, NM, from Taos Drums in about 1970. It has had one owner, a woman who lived in Taos for many years. It's a stunning handmade piece that is perfect for pow-wows and other cultural events or as an art piece in the home, which is what it has been for the past 30 years. The rawhide shows some natural mottling on the bottom, which was a part of the leather when it was made, and there is a reddish stain at the edge of the leather on the bottom as well. Leather has gained character with age. The large drum allows deep and powerful sounds to resonate through any space. It is 17" wide x 18" high.
