Beautiful, vintage, hand made ceremonial DRUM
by Tony Bob, a Coast Salish artist from the Lummi Nation. The Lummi People (Lhaq'temish) are the original inhabitants of Washington's northernmost coast and southern British Columbia. Tony Bob is a well known artist of those people and has specialized in making drums, which mainly - just like this one - are used for various ceremonies.
Sarah Daniels (nee Robertson) is a member of the Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka’wakw) First Nation with part of her heritage connecting to the Coast Salish. She was born in Nanaimo, a small fishing town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada with roots in Kingcome Inlet, BC. Tony hand crafted the drum, using elk hide and sinew. Very well made with a powerful sound. Sarah added the painting - also, very powerful expression and very clean painting.
The drum is vintage, estimated late 1980's and signed by both artists. It's showing minor signs of aging and gentle handling. A great piece and a superb addition to any serious native art collection.
Measurements: 18 1/2" diameter, 3" thick
