I've noticed a lot of people in this thread (and in past "gear shot" type threads) - not everyone, but many people have a tendency towards indian, native american, aboriginal, african, etc... types of decorations - whether it's rugs, blankets, wall hangings or artwork, masks, etc... Of course, quite a few drums tossed in as well which are both functional and ornamental...
Posting from Europe here.
Had my drum for a few years - made in South America. The faces on the wall were made by a friend of mine - the smaller one is Blodeuwydd, one of the celtic beings from the ancient myths who was made of flowers. The larger face is a representaion of Grandmother Earth, and she always looks like she is just about to open her eyes.
The other circular artistic objects I created myself and are based around the tree of life in celtic myth and my wonder at the Stars. The smallest one has a celtic knot at the bottom with a wild boar roaming under the oak trees.
I've always been interested in both ancient and other cultures, both for their spiritual beliefs (which like any others can be both positive and negative) and other ways of understanding the worlds around us (such as Irish moneylenders able to retrieve the debts in the borrowers and their own next lives, and some native American ceremonies not just held to affect,say, the buffalo hunt about to happen, but also the celebratory dance still affecting the outcome of the hunt after it finished)
Not into the new age argument - other than concern that western attitudes of dabbling and believing we can cherry pick parts of belief systems can lead people into dangerous areas.........
