Stoneware Doumbek Darbuka Cernunnos Herne Tie Dyed Goat
Hand thrown stoneware medium size doumbek with a dancing Celtic horned god among the stars, Cernunnos or Herne holding snake and torc incised in turquoise slip. The glaze is my smooth buttermilk that picks up all the subtleties of the form. This has a beautiful green and orange tie dyed skin to compliment the drum. Perfect drum to express yourself if you have a connection to these Gods!
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 drum 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 inches high by 7.25 inches at the head, a perfect size for traveling with, but still with a large bass and very crisp top end tones.
