Bob's 12" Painted Drum w/ all accessories
Rebirth. New Life. Hope. Renewal.
I call this THE HUMMINGBIRD Drum
This 12-inch drum is a real treasure, just like its namesake. It possesses such WONDERFUL energy and liveliness that every time I worked on the prototype I had the impression of Hummingbird, the beautiful totemic animal associated with high energy and joy. And fierceness! Pound for pound, or rather I should say ounce for ounce, the hummingbird is one of the most fearless warrior birds on the wing, very protective of its family and home.
The Hummer's mystical qualities are legendary, too, including even the pattern it draws when moving its wings-- in the shape of the sign of infinity (the figure 8). Thus, it's often associated with rebirth, new life, hope and renewal. All in all, this is a dramatic dynamo of energy, protection and even the projection of hope and spiritual healing. What wonderful energy for a drum!
And, as they say, great things come in small packages. It sounds fantastic!
The Decorated Version of the Hummingbird Drum is constantly evolving, no two are alike, so the photos you see are only a guideline for the beautiful drum you can expect to receive! Plus, with this option, you may have the image of your choice painted onto the drum by our artist.
The 12-Inch Hummingbird Drum... a lightweight and superbly crafted ally for your spiritual journey. I would be honored to make one for you now.
