Spirit Bear of the Heavens
This rattle depicts on it the "Cosmic Bear". According to the maker the Cosmic Bear "is the Spirit, the totem, the Grandfather, the Grandmother. He is pure Spirit being created by the Creator since before Creation. An ancient being, powerful and respect among others. He manages armies of other Bear Spirits, and is loved. He is strict in his teachings and manner. He walks with the sun, blessing the Earth, and brings in the night sun (moon). The cosmos is seen in his ethereal body, the stars, and his constellation. His den is represented by the sweatlodge, inside the Earth, like a mother’s womb. Bringing healing, restoration, love, and transformation." On the end of the handle is painted the Four Directions. The rattle can take up to 3 weeks to make and ship out, though may be done sooner.
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.
