Iktome the Trickster
This is everything you would hope for in a rattle. The handle is made soft, and at a great diameter for firm and easy holding. The hide of the rattle is filled with Sacred Creek Rock Fill, in just the right proportion to make a full, pleasing and powerful sound with every shake. The craftsmanship is wonderful. Ever bit of it, including the artwork is handmade by a Native maker and Shaman, a member of a Cree tribe in Northern Canada. It is 9-10 inch length, so it is easy to transport and carry.
This rattle depicts the rendition of Iktome the trickster from Native American legends wonderfully. The handle is carefully wrapped in a fine suede with several beads holding the tassels together on the end of the handle.
Each of these rattles are made by hand. Each rattle is an individual work of sacred art by the maker, and there may be little differences between the rattle you see pictured here and the rattle you receive, for example, such as a small altering of the wrap.
