Sun/Moon Dog 16" Deer Hide Drum

500.00

I love looking up at the sky in the morning and in the evening to greet and say goodnight to Mother Earth. Lately, I have seen many times where there has been a halo around the sun or the moon. I did some research and they are respectively called Sun Dog and Moon Dog phenomenon. It is beautiful to see, therefore, I wanted to depict both on to a drum.

This 16” deer hide drum is locally made from the Tsarlip First Nation on a yellow cedar ring. To create the artwork, I do a pencil sketch first and then use acrylic paint pens. I have also added 24K Gold Leaf to the sun and liquid chrome ink to the moon.

The mallet comes with the drum where I have also wood-burned the sun/moon symbol.

The drum has been sprayed with a matte acrylic sealer to protect the paint from wear-and-tear. This drum is to be used, but please keep it out of the rain. The paint will wear off over time/use, but can be touched up.

For further information on how to take care of a drum, please email me with any questions.
