Painted elk hide hand drum.
Botanical themes are unusual. This one was done by special request.
Odin has captured the moment Hummingbird and Bear happen upon each other while feeding in lush blueberry bushes, using a combination of formline and modern painting styles.
In this vignette, both hummingbird and bear are startled. Are those drops in the middle of the drum blueberries or saliva falling off mama bear's blueberry-stained tongue??
