This STEER HORN RATTLE is made from a cattle/steer horn with a leather & seed bead wrapped handle. Leather & beading colors will vary. There is a plume of horse hair on top along with bits of fur. Horn rattles are used in ceremonial dances, the horns show power, and the noise they make is to call on the spirits. This rattle measures 16 inches in length with another 4 inches of horsehair. These artifacts are handcrafted by a Cherokee artist Wetfoot.
A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
