The drum embodies a power that some believe can alter the world. Our Native American Drum Head Hand Made Chandelier is a combination of master craftsmanship and the history that makes drums such an important aspect of Native American culture. Hand crafted with a genuine Arapaho ceremonial rawhide bottom and exotic cedar, this Custom Ceiling Lighting has been created by our dedicated artisans to be a true work of art.
Lighting Custom Made to Enhance Your Rustic or Southwestern Theme
The drum is a sacred symbol to Native Americans that is believed to have the power to influence the elements, communicate with the spirit world, and even heal sickness. Considered to be humanity?s first musical instrument, the oldest drum found in the Americas dates back to 700 CE, though they?ve been used for ceremonies much longer than that. Many styles exist including single head, double-head, and water drums that are used and played in a variety of ways.
Add a Hand Made Chandelier to Your Unique Home
Our Custom Ceiling lighting is built with the same care as a real Native American drum and serves as an example of crafted designer art. The drum chandelier features a twin arrow design that is heat branded into the rawhide diffuser. This branding process ensures that the image becomes permanent and will never fade or rub away. The diffuser itself is hand tied with lace grade rawhide and the wood is quality exotic cedar, put together with mortise and tenon joinery by our master craftsmen.
The cedar is finished with five coats of hand rubbed, clear lacquer to retain its superior color and quality. Your Hand Made Chandelier is UL listed and hangs by a decorative ceiling canopy and includes hand forged iron arrow hangers. Custom built to order, you can choose any size with any image or design.
