Egyptian style sistrum is a unique instrument inspired by the cultures of Auset/Isis, the Egyptian goddess of music, muse, and fertility.
It stands 16" high and is handcrafted from sheesham with nickel silver jingles strung on rods deliberately snake-shaped in keeping with its historical aspects.
It is historically used to enhance ceremony, ritual, journeying, drumming and dancing.
The nickel jingles make a fairly loud sound when shook. It can be controlled as well to give louder and softer jingle notes.
