After drumming in a drum circle for a little while, one gets the feeling that the rhythm carries you, the music swells and you ride it like a wave: dancers spin and prance, the down beat provides the foundation of the rhythm. Looking down your hands seem to know what to do of their own accord. Rhythm pours and spills from your drum out to the circle only to be caught up and cast forth by elegant hands and prancing feet. Every beat says: “Joy”…
To celebrate this moment, I present to you the new design from amulets by Merlin: Djembe of Fire Amulet; the classic shape of the djembay including the tuning ropes and the shaggy, natural drum head, flames lick up the front of the Drum, the hands form a tongue of flame. This amulet is one and a quarter inch tall, carved as a relief including the knots used to tune the drum: the diamonds, rings and the left over flaps of the goat skin for a drum head. A bail is placed behind the amulet to be worn on a chain or cord.
This amulet is for anyone who loves rhythm, who create it , hear it and dance to it.
Another awesome amulet from Merlin…I really like how the hands are carved on this. You have captured a spirit here!
