Paula says -

"This incredibly beautiful work of art was entirely hand crafted, carved, wood burned, and painted. There are no is no glue-on decals, no tracings or appliqués used. The sound of this rattle is crisp and clear.

"The designs include a Four Directions Medicine Wheel with a turquoise cabochon in the center. The borders on both the top and bottom are crisp bright Anasazi designs. Two White Wolves are depicted in unique and wondrous designs. Each element is a work of art in itself, and combined they make a truly amazing piece."

How This Rattle was Made

"Each gourd (gourd is another of Mother Nature's wood items) is grown and crafted with respect and ceremony. PYROGRAPHY is used - carving into the surface with fire. Followed by using archival quality dyes, paints & sealer to accent the design, letting the beauty of the natural gourd shine through." - Cynthia Whitehawk

From Apache Artist Cynthia Whitehawk

RATTLES - To First Nations people, shakers or rattles represent rain (for Prayers of abundance and prosperity) and tears, especially those of emotional release. Tears of joy signifying when the mind, body, soul and Spirit connect. Ceremonially, rattles are used in cleansing and purifying, Spiritual guidance work, Celebration and in thanks and respect to Ancestral Spirits.

WOLF: The wolf teaches great dignity, courage, powerful Spirit communications, instinct and intelligence. Deep family connection and importance, stealth, wisdom, and extreme endurance. The wolf is a powerful ally on our Spiritual Journeys.

MEDICINE WHEEL - The Medicine Wheel represents American Indian Spirituality - the journey each individual must take to find his or her path. The Medicine Wheel is based on the four cardinal directions and the four sacred colors. A circle represents life; at the center of the circle is the eternal fire.
