Horse Head thunder drum made from a large kettle gourd.  The head is wood burned in addition to background being watercolor painted in shades green fading to lavender. There is a cut out horse shoe toward top of the gourd to allow the sound to resonate. The embellishment in the center of the horse shoe is a tear drop shaped turquoise gemstone coupled with a copper splash above it. The horse naturally conveys the message that she is strong and determined. Confident and graceful in all that she does.
