Authentic Sami drum produced locally in northern Lapland. traditionally it is used by the Shaman to get into trance, or to obtain information from the future or about other places. The drum was held in one hand, and eventually operated with the other hand.
Manufactered by hand with authentic materials such as wood, reindeer skin and horn.
The patterns on the drum membrane reflect the world view of the owner and his family, both in religious matters and in worldly matters such as reindeer herding, hunting, householding and relations to their neighbours and to the non-Sami community.
