This gourd is part of a canteen gourd. Instead of a wood ring or a leather covered metal ring, it is a gourd ring! I have done the leather, feather & bead drops like all my dream catchers but this one I was able to add a special touch of different Native American symbols. We have a bear, medicine wheel, rain, lightning, sun, fleu de les, crossed arrows, badger & deer. They are carved in. The feathers are white duck & pheasant & the beads are brass & mustard glass matte beads. It is 29" long without hang strap & 8 1/2" wide.
