Rare find - you really don't see these often

Beautiful very finely woven cedar bark RATTLE with Canoe design. The rattle is tightly woven with the traditional cedar bark and grass by the Artist Sheryl Tate who is a member of the Ditidath First Nation. Sheryl comes from a long line of weavers, incl. her mother Charlotte and her very well known and respected great grandmother Mary McKay.

Sheryl filled the rattle with copper pieces which gives it a very distinct sound. The handle is adorned with leather - a really excellent piece of Art which took many hours and love for details to finish.

Measurements: 12" tall, the head is 4" diameter
