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).
Rattles having been used for many centuries by different traditions and native peoples around the globe. Shamanic cultures such as Native American, Aboriginal, Amazonian, African, Russian and pagan all used and still use rattles in their ceremonies. There are many different styles of rattle, some big, making a very loud sound, while others are smaller, giving much more airy and delicate notes. Using repetitive sounds within the human aura of the body when combined with good intention and focus can help to break up energetic blocks and negative energy. Rattles are tools you can use on yourself or others for healing and for generally changing bad for good. Rattles can help you align with a higher purpose.
More About the Symbol of the Deer
Deer energy is very gentle. Deer energy ignores negativity and bad behaviour and cuts right through this to find the true heart of whatever or whoever they are dealing with. For someone who wishes to hold bad thoughts about others this can be hard to deal with as deer energy offers nothing for them to fight with and just like the five of swords in the Tarot they may just put their sword down and stop fighting leaving themselves open to love and compassion.
The Buddha is often depicted with a deer and in many legends knights (such as Sir Gawain) follow deer deep into woodland to find new adventures and new heart. Deer brings a healing gift because it is so gentle and only sees through the eyes of love. This is a powerful thing as it can cause others to respond back in kind. Thus healing them.
Staff Review by Brett Almond
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.
