A very rare late 19th Century Bella Coola hand carved and painted shaman’s globular rattle. Delicately carved from red cedar, finely painted with a simple yet precise face design in black pigment. Original doe skin wrap on hand , tie on edge and a loop holding a small sacred cedar bark bundle to the back. Beautiful aged patina throughout and makes a great sound when shaken. Note the fine tool marks to the backside, museum quality example.
