Hand carved ceremonial RAVEN Dance RATTLE, on wooden Stand

The rattle itself is carved out of cedar, filled with little stones, excellent carving and painting all around on each side. The Raven's head is decorated with traditional bark and rope from the cedar tree. These dance rattles are very important and present at any potlatch ceremony. The sound is powerful. It's sitting on a natural wooden (pine) base with a large peg and can be taken off easy. It's signed underneath the base
