Minoan Goddess Drum
A 22-inch elk skin hand drum with a cedar frame crafted by my friend Nikiah over at Red Moon Musings and painted by me with the famous Minoan imagery of the Snake Goddess figurine and two honey bees from an excavated pendant. Painted with red acrylic and then only the painted areas were varnished for protection, leaving the rest of the hide alone. I took the photo before the varnishing so the paint is matte rather than the richer, shiny red it became after. It’s a giant good-looking drum and I’m rather proud of this collaboration.
