Details

A hollow tambora drum takes the shape of a woman, eloquently carved from sese wood by Salihu Ibrahim. "This drum is used by the Dan tribe from Liberia," he says. It can be played from the small space where the sticks are placed or from the big space in front, each creating a different sound. This is not an ordinary drum. It is played only when warriors are about to dance during harvest festivals to show off their powers, because when this drum is played a special spirit possesses them that enables them to win their battles." Applications of white clay give the piece an antique appearance.
