Handmade Homegrown Medium Natural Gourd Shekere
This is one of a batch of locally grown and made (Chattanooga area) Shekeres we acquired recently. These are all made of natural gourds grown in the maker's garden. The beaded nets are all hand-knotted and beaded with a variety of plastic beads.
This particular shekere has a painted finish instead of the clear gloss of the others, and it also has a net with onlt 1 bead per knot, so it is a little quiter and drier-sounding than the multi-bead-per-knot ones.
Approximately 8" diameter and 10" high
