Handmade Zuni Gourd Rattle Featuring Rattlesnake Painting by Gilbert Bowannie

Product Description

Here is a wonderful Zuni Ceremonial Rattle which was handmade and painted by Gilbert Bowannie. It depicts a rattlesnake with blood dripping from its teeth. The snake is wrapped around the entire rattle so that his head meets his tail. Just shake the rattle to hear the snake rattle its tail!

Gourd Rattles are traditionally used in ceremonial dances and part of religious ceremonies and celebrations.  During the harvest celebrations, parents of young Zuni boys will request to have a Gourd rattle made for their son's. As a young boy, it is a huge honor to receive one.
