Crafted in Peru this small solid brass bell has a clear sweet sound. The handle features a Shaman.
Our wonderful ceremonial rattle is handcrafted in the Peruvian Amazon from dried gourds and chonta wood. This rattle features a stylized chakana both sides. Trimmed with colorful cotton thread windings and the molted feathers of Amazon birds, each rattle is a unique work of art and has its own sound. Your rattle may vary slightly from the photo. Choose your bowl size from small (lemon size), medium (orange size), large (grapefruit size) or extra large. 11 inches long.
A hand held bunch of palm fronds tied together and used in the Amazon as both a rhythm and healing instrument. In a healing, the chacapa is rubbed and rattled over or near the patient’s body to capture or brush out the spirit intrusion. Once he has it in his chacapa, the shaman then blows through the leaves to disperse the intrusion into the rainforest where the spirits of the plants absorb and discharge its energy.
Our fair trade, hand carved gourd rattles are made in Central Peru. The gourds are grown in the warm Central Valleys of the Andes, the costal oasis and in the jungles. After harvest they are thoroughly dried, skinned and then sanded smooth. The designs are carved on the gourd without sketching creating many intricate designs. Our designs vary so let us pick one for you. Sold individually. Gourd carving is one of the oldest art forms in Peru and dates back to 2,500 BC.
