Large wooden drum from Congo with great signs of use and age. The leather on top is still in tact en makes a good sound.

Drums are among the most important art forms in Africa, used both as a musical instrument and as a work of sculpture significant in many ceremonial functions, including dance, rituals, story-telling and communication of messages.
Good patina of age with traces of wear and tear.

Provenance: former private collection from Belgium.
