Stoneware Doumbek Darbuka Gaia Goddess Tie Dyed Goat
Hand thrown stoneware doumbek with a aculpted Gaia Goddess figure offering a breast and holding her belly as the base. The glaze is my Temoku black gloss that picks up all the subtleties of the form., This has a beautiful orange-red tie dyed skin to compliment the drum. Perfect drum to express yourself if you have a connection to the earth!
This middle Eastern belly dance style drum includes a clay strap lug mounted at the balance point, so just add a cloth shoulder strap and these are easy to carry and play. Ceramic drums can break, so I highly recommend you store them on a wall hook, away from sunlight and moisture. The cloth strip is mainly decorative. but also adds to make a non slip surface to rest your hand. This drum is 9.25 inches high by 7 inches at the head, a perfect size for traveling with, but still with a large bass and very crisp top end tones.
