Inspired by traditional animal totems, the Rattlesnake has a soft, inviting sound. Tiny pebbles and seeds click together, reminiscent of the snake’s rattle, while small bells add music to the mix. The handle is natural hand-peeled cedar; attached are jade-green and brown beads, feather trinkets, and real turkey feathers.

As an animal totem Snake represents:

  • Elusiveness
  • Transmutation
  • Creative Power
  • Immortality
  • Fertility
  • Balance
  • Patience
  • Cunning
  • Rebirth
  • Wisdom
  • Fluidity
  • Transformation

As far as color, Rattlesnake is my favorite; the snake itself is shiny gold, and the whole drum head is finished in a beautiful brown gloss.
