This wonderful rattle with an elk leg bone handle would be carried by the dancer during ceremonies, traditionally in the right hand. The turtle shell represents longevity, the elk leg swiftness, and the fur, warmth. Each shell is wrapped with rawhide and each rattle will vary in size and color of shell and fur. This rattle measures 15 inches in length with another 5 inches in horsehair tassel.
