Singing Seal Shaman Drummer

View more work by Jerome Saclamana

Reflecting the native belief in the connectivity of all things, the shaman's body takes on the form of a seal. He holds a drum as part of a ceremony and the feather in his mouth is an artistic representation of a shamanistic principle that the mouth is a gateway for the supernatural. The drum is made from fossil walrus ivory.  The body of the shaman is accented with ptarmigan feathers and intricate baleen inlay.
