Our sacred ceremonial rattle is handcrafted in the Peruvian Amazon from chonta wood and gourds. This rattle features an etched animal design on the front and reverse sides of the bowl. Finely finished with yarn tufted tops. Each rattle is a unique work of art and has its own sound. Your choice of animal style and handle length. Length is measured excluding the tufted tops and run 10 to 12 inches; bowl size is 2 -4 inches, allowing for some slight variation of these handmade items. Your rattle may vary slightly from photo shown. Handmade in Peru.

Providing a connection to the sacred arts of indigenous communities
Shamans use sound to enter trance states for healing and accessing the Otherworlds, and for causing shifts and changes in their own and other peoples' energy fields. Sound has powerful effects on the body, the brain and the mind, and the sounds made by rattles are said by native peoples around the world to attract the attention of helpful Spirits. The sound from a rattle is perfect for all these needs, and has the benefit of not travelling too far- it wont disturb your neighbours at home, or bring unwanted attention outdoors. Rattles are also used for cleansing energy fields...and are used for this purpose at the beginning of ceremonies and rituals to ensure there is no negativity in that place... Rattles have another quality. which is that their form lends itself well to decoration - carving or beadwork on the handle, artwork on the head of the rattle...they can be adorned with totem signs and symbols, and this will all help to keep these connections at the forefront of your consciousness when you are using your rattle.From: http://www.galdraheim.kirion.net/
