In traditional cultures the drums often have an official, ceremonial, sacred or symbolic character. In some African countries, the drums represent and protect tribal royalty 
and are often kept in sacred places. 

This collection of drums is my interpretation of the sacred and the tribal.
The materials were selected as raw as nature provides them and are hand-embellished with traditional instruments to ensure a simple yet beautiful decor.
