Native American Hand Made Rawhide Rattle w Beaded Handle
Native American artist Rayme Little Wounded, Minneconjou Lakota Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, created this rattle to commemorate the spiritual relationship between horse and rider.
Rayme used deer rawhide to form the head of the rattle. He attached this to a wooden handle that he wrapped with glass beads, red wool cloth, and a cluster of metal bells with metal beads on leather thongs.
Rayme added pheasant feathers and imitation eagle feathers to the rattle. He finishes the decoration of the rattle by painting a horse and rider on the rawhide surface of the head.
The piece is signed by the artist.
