shamanic drum womb of creation
Shamanic drum womb of creation.
This shamanic drum i have created to honor the divine feminine. It is a 45 cm nearly egg shaped tunable drum. The frame is made from oak wood, the skin is red deer. In the center, handle is a jasper gemstone. She has a very deep sound, with a nice range of a little higher notes in it as well, a joy to discover. The beater has a leather side and a fur side, which will give different sounds as well.
I have been working on this idea for a long time. The bottom part of the frame is created with two layers of wood, and a hollow space in between these, to represent the womb. During the process of creating, i have come across so much guidance regarding the use of this drum. The first intention was the connection with the universal womb of creation, the space of possibilities. Then of course there is the strong connection with our own womb,with the magic and miracle of new beginnings of life. The space for reception and magic. But during the making another aspect showed up… how important it is to have a sacred and safe space to live, work and create. This drum has showed me so many lessons already, and i am really looking forward and excited to feel more and more connected to making and birthing these type of drums.
Grateful to live in this beautiful area, with the caves and beautiful nature and calmth and stilness. So pleased to see how the connection with nature is becoming visible and palpable in my work.
