Here we are offering a very rare original Drum used to practice Shamanic Journeying by the Tamang Tribe from the Himalayan Region near Kathmandu. The drum is made of wood with bamboo reed straps weaving the goat skin to make a tight drumhead. It plays with a deep booming voice and comes with the curvy stick for playing. The handle is the traditional three sided Phurba Dagger with a Deity head and many shamanistic symbols carved into the blade. This ancient tool of magic has been used by Buddhist Bonpo Shaman’s for centuries to go into a trance and channel the benevolent helping Deities. Measures 25″ long with drumhead 13.5″ in diameter and about 4.5″ thick. An ideal tool for the practicing Shaman or great drum collectible.
