16-inch Kangaroo & Willow Medicine Drum

Inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, this drum celebrates the beauty of natural patterns and the infinite cycle of life. Dyed in midnight blue, the hide bears a mesmerizing and unique pattern, echoing the unpredictability of creation itself. Held by natural-coloured braided sinew, the drum’s “stem” is accentuated with brown sinew, while green sinew highlights the Fibonacci sequence. At its base, a lapis lazuli crystal doughnut symbolizes wisdom and truth. Copper and silver gilding wax adorn the meeting points, accentuating the drum’s intricate design. The Fibonacci sequence is intricately created on the front in a mandala theme, reminding us of the interconnectedness of all things. The hoop, painted in various green and blue hues with an earthy blue topcoat, reflects the messy yet beautiful nature of creation.

Embrace the journey of creation with this exquisite drum lovingly and passionately hand-made by Kat.

Description

At Blind Kat Creative, crafting our drums is a sacred journey, guided by love and respect for nature and the spirit. Each drum, consciously handmade by Kat, is born in a cleansed and sacred space. During this profound process, we extend gratitude and honour to the animals, wood, and the future player. It’s a harmonious dance of reverence that infuses each drum with a unique soul.
Please note that since we use natural materials, such as hides, feathers, and crystals, every instrument is one-of-a-kind. This means that the patterning may vary slightly from the photographs, making your drum as unique as you are.

Mallets are available separately to enhance your drumming experience.

A quick note of caution: We cherish the safety of all, so please don’t leave children unattended with our drums, as small items could become loose during play.
