Carved Cottonwood Seven Council Fire Drum Group
Cottonwood Carving (Chan Kasku) by Leonard Yellow Horse
Seven Council Fire Drum Group
Captivating and Charming. Each drummer is unique with tons of detail; each is signed and holds a drum stick. The drum is signed with the artist's distinctive logo on the top and the title and date on the bottom. The side of the drum is also carved.
The contour and unique characteristics of each piece of wood dictate the form. Mr Yellow Horse tells us these people already reside in the wood and he simply finds them and brings them out. The cottonwood is sourced from dry riverbeds on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The bottom is signed and dated with the artist's distinctive signature. Hand carved with details added using a torch tool.
Each set is handmade and unique. The set currently in stock has the tallest drummers at 4" high and drum is 3.5" diameter and is shown in the first three photos.
Signed, original, unique Oglala Lakota Sioux Native American cottonwood carving.
