In the previous post, I outlined the shamanic hoop drums I offer. Today I'd like to share some Lightning and Thunder with you!
Thunder Valley Drums began when I started making lightning-struck drums, and only years later did I expand my work to include hoop drums with lightning wood grafted to them. I can't recall how many
lightning drums I've made over the years, but I am working on two more to be introduced early next year.
We'll start with a prince of a drum!
The Celtic Prince Drum is made from a red oak that was struck by lightning sometime in the 1990s. It's a fanciful drum, based on an original fictional story of a Celtic clan leader who wanted a drum
made for his young princely son.
It is certainly a high energy "fun drum" to have around! It features carvings of a fishing expedition (photo, left), a dragon, a woodpecker, apple wood slices, emeralds, and a very special hammered
brass medallion, all of which were made for the leader's son in honor of the clan's traditions.
This is not a drum you will see everyday!
