Each drum I create is a one-of-a-kind original Honor-Piece, dedicated to a specific theme. The title of this drum is "For the Heart of the Child" and depicts a Mother Mountain Lion guarding her cub. The child is surrounded symbolically by human and cat-like spirit guardians all present to assist the child/cub to stand on its convictions and to follow its heart. Mountain Lion represents power and leadership. Are we teaching our children the appropriate sacred responsibilities of becoming a TRUE HUMAN BEING? Do we know our own truth well enough to live it, as an example to our cubs?
