Hopi Mud Head Gourd Rattle Made from a hard-shelled Hopi Rattle Gourd grown in Canon City, Colorado. This Mud Head Rattle represents Koyemsi the Mudhead Kachina figure in Hopi Indian Lore. Koyemsi is the most well known of the Kachinas and appears in almost all Hopi ceremonies. The rattle handle is made of Cottonwood root which was harvested in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. Hopi Kachina makers use Cottonwood root because the Cottonwood is a water-seeking source and therefore it is spiritual in nature. Gourd size is 3 inches tall and 2½ inches at its widest. Handle length is 7 inches long exposed, but it actually runs through the entire gourd and is pinned on the top. A leather lanyard is included with handle. There is also a thin black wire attached for use in hanging the rattle. Rattle sound is loud and robust. One of a kind item, great for home decoration. Weight: 3 Oz's
