Rattles call-in power, energy and allies and are known to break up static energy. This is a rare, one of a kind rattle, hand painted by our dear Shipiba abuela, Manuela, elder matriarch of the Flores Agustin Family in Peru.

These gourd rattles are hand-carved with traditional design patterns by the Shipibo people of the Peruvian Amazon. The Shipibo see and hear the patterns in nature and reproduce them in song and design for a variety of purposes such as protection, healing, abundance and harmony. Each of the designs has a specific meaning and can be sung as each of these artful prayers also function as a musical score, called an Icaro.

The design element and the Icaro operate cohesively to carry the power of the healing or blessing. This rattle measures 8" in length
