Traditional shaman drum that is carefully handmade in Finland, where old Nordic shamanic traditions have survived throughout the centuries. It has been crafted out of traditional materials without the use of any powertools. Only a handsaw, a knife and sandpaper has been used during the process. This crafting method takes time, but it is necessary if the drum is to have a spirit of its own.
Freyja surrounded by both divine and mortal features is beautifully painted by hand onto the drumskin. "Freyja Vanadis Gefn Valfreyja Mardöll Viki" is written with the Younger Futhark (Viking Age) runes. It translates to: "Freyja the Dís of the Vanir who gives Gives, the Lady of the Slain who illuminates the sea, bless and protect". Freyja is the Viking Age goddess of love, war, death, sex, beauty, fertility, gold and seithr (shamanic practices).
It is truly a fantastic instrument. The reindeer hide drumhead combined with the solid structure results in an amazing echo and powerful sound.
The drum comes with care instructions and a guide to the Drum Awakening Ceremony incase you wisht to use it for shamanic practices rather than just as an instrument.
