Physical description

Octagonal drum with deer hide stretched over a wooden frame and secured at the back with sinew. The face of the drum has a splash pattern at the centre in black ink. The hide is translucent along one half of the drum. The sinew, threaded through the edges of the hide, is pulled to the centre like spokes. A piece of elastic black string has been tied to two of the sinew spokes, for hanging.
