Paula says -

"Awesome is an understatement. This incredibly beautiful work of art was entirely hand crafted, carved, wood burned, & painted. There are no is no glue-on decals, no tracings or appliqués used.

"The design includes a Four Directions Morning Star with a turquoise cabochon in the center and dragonflies. The wrist strap is made of deer hide and is embellished with nickel beads and traditional nickel cones.

"The sound of this rattle is crisp & clear."

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

Dragonfly Morning Star Spirti Ceremonial Rattle

From Apache Artist Cynthia Whitehawk

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

DRAGONFLY - Spiritually embodies the stripping away all negativity that holds us back, helping us to achieve our dreams & goals. Reminds us that anything is possible & is the keeper of dreams, the energy within that sees all of our true potential and ability. Dragonfly inspires Spiritually & Creatively, helps on the path of discovery and enlightenment.

MORNING STAR - Infinite possibilities, Hope, Renewal, sign for Venus, also the Goddess. Honored as a sign of courage and purity of Spirit. The Ghost Dance Religion saw it as a symbol of the coming renewal of tradition, re-birth of the ancient ways of living with Mother Earth.
