Dimensions: Overall length of rattle varies from about 15-17 cms (about 6 inches). This length excludes leather tassels.
The round rattle head is made from leather, moulded, set and then hand painted by the artist and then coated to protect. You may notice that some rattles have either a crystal or an arrow head on the stem. We cannot guarantee if we have both in stock but if you prefer one or the other please mention this in the "anything else to tell us" box as you check out. Each rattle has a small signed certificate of authenticity attached (can be seen in photo).
We say: I really like these rattles. The size is fairly constant, the leather bindings are secure and a good thick quality of leather. There are only a small number of stones inside the rattle so the sound of the rattle is light. At one end there is a loop of leather so that the rattle can be hung up. The paintings can vary in colour but the basic essence is similar. (by Brett)
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Going within, sweetness of life
The bear hibernates and goes within. Bear energy is the energy that seeks your deepest truths. And with the finding of your truth comes the honey of life - the sweetness that comes with knowing who you truly are. Bear energy helps you to go within and touch the great void where creation and you come from. By entering silence we give ourselves the opportunity to return to the world stronger and wiser. Bear energy is also about taking the courage that to stop thinking is not to die because we are so much more than our thoughts. So take a break, go within yourself and introspect. From the true place of bear we can see that life is like a dream to us and that our deeper self is not so tied with earthly concerns.
To have with you the symbol of bear is to state your intention to travel within and connect with the places where intuition and "knowing without thinking" are the rulers. Some activities that can help support this connection are meditation, dreaming, long walks by yourself and switching off the television.
