A Shamanic chest piece of a ritual armour: a drum, a bell chain, a knife and accompanying feathers.
This lot has hung on the wall with a collector for almost 56 years and is now available through this auction.
The whole consists of a chest piece of a ritual armour made of leather and fabrics with approximately 24 original antique bells and flat, tooled discs of metal and symbolic objects. The maximum width is 130 cm. The height is 154 cm.
The drum is original, including its matching drum stick. There is a bunch of feathers hanging from the drum. The diameter of the drum is 39 cm. The height is 8 cm.
The necklace with bells is of unique quality and has a total length of 65 cm, with a total of 10 original antique bells. Please take note of the many photos for a good assessment.
There is a remarkable appliqué tassel with feathers. The knife is upholstered in leather and is 29.5 cm long.
The leather of the chest piece has never been greased and therefore stiff and hard.
I will package the item carefully and will ship it only by registered and insured post. Will be shipped within 24 hours after purchase, signature will be required upon delivery.
