Unlike my other drum ("Song Dog"), which I had the opportunity to make myself, I bought the drum (bodhrán) for this one. I then painted this design on it. The three spirals is a celtic petroglyph, and the bird is a raven.
Painted in 2006, photo in 2011. (This is actually after a massive flood in my area. The drum was salvaged and after some washing and sanitizing, survived!)
