These authentic mararcas were handmade in the Venezuelan, Amazon. Maracas are traditionally an instrument of the shamans. This Amazon calabash is made from dried fruit of the Tapar tree, which is then carved with geometric patterns or figures. It is then filled with seeds or stones and secured with a handle and string. Design and size vary, 23cm.
Each one has its own sound, filled with achira seeds and decorated with traditional designs making each one a unique piece of art. Beautifully etched, the patterns represent the traditional icaro song patterns of the Shipibo.
