Shaman Rattle Shipibo
These rattles are made from the Tutuma fruit of the Calabash Tree by the women of the Shipibo-Conibo people in Peru.
Traditionally, the shaman receives melodies and ornamental lines from the transcendent world during a ritual. He then shares the graphic patterns called quené with the women of the community. The Shipibo women then materialize the quené on textiles, vessels or rattles. The latter help the healer to fall into trance and are used to harmonize the world and the people.
These rattles sound bright and loud and can be used for shamanic journeys, healing rituals or simply as a instrument.
