When first attending Drum Circles, a dear friend who simply couldn’t tear herself away from the down beat refused to withdraw to her tent after drumming ‘till four in the morning. On a blanket and just outside the circle, she curled up with her drum and fell asleep. It was an image that etched into my mind for years to come.
Just a couple of years ago a young lady often commented the effect that drumming has on her: “I fall to sleep every time. All you guys have to do and start drumming and I am out in minutes”. Her husband chuckled over this and thought that it would be a great subject of a sculpture. He contracted a sculpture for her birthday. “Just add a cat to it” he told me. “She loves her cats!”
The result is The Sleeping Drummer. This bronze statue is over six inches long and placed on a slice of oak for a pedestal. She sleeps while hugging her drum and her trusty cat plays a rhythm that keeps her dozing.
