We are in love with these tribal drums here at the shop! We do not know their exact age or country of origin, but we love them regardless. They are just what the designer ordered! There are three in three sizes. The largest is of carved wood in a rather hourglass shape with a hair-on hide for the top. The medium sized one is also carved wood in the semi-hourglass shape but has a naked hide for the top. Both are large enough and would make such interesting little side tables with just enough room to place a cocktail or cup of coffee. The smallest one is conical in shape and is completely covered in hair-on zebra hide. You can see the striped hide pattern on the top, but the sides are twisted strips of cut hide. This one makes an awesome pedestal or looks fabulous alone displayed on a shelf, as do they all. So, you see you don’t just have to use them for their intended purpose as a musical instrument….you can use them decoratively! You must make them yours.
