For sale is a Native American carved and painted rattle in the rare design of a mussel.
This rattle incorporates horse hair from one side, rabbit fur on the handle, and is surrounded by braided, dyed rope.
Although I am unable to find a signature I can say with confidence that this is the work of master carver Bill Wilson.
Rattles are percussive instruments used in shamanic & ceremonial contexts.
This exquisitely carved rattle is 15″ L X 5 1/2″ W and in very good condition.
I have been selling authentic Northwest Coast Art online since 1999 so buy with confidence.
