Fabulous piece of true Indigenous art by Virgil Sampson, a member of the Coast Salish First Nation

SUN design drum, elk hide

Fully hand painted and hand made. This is an exceptionally large piece, the sounds is so powerful. the painting close to perfection. Virgil spends many hours on every piece and pays so much attention to details. The used vibrant and just beautiful colors for the sun, each ray shows a copper color rim which just makes it even more outstanding. Very rich in expression and I can only mention it again, the sound is unbelievable!!!

Measurements: 24" diameter, 3" rim - Please listen to the video to hear the sound, but it really doesn't do it justice. 

Meaning: For native people the drum represents the heart beat.
