Painted drum with a painted design of a bullhead fish. Round drum made of deer hide tightly stretched over a yellow cedar ring. The hide extends around the bottom of the ring where it is fastened to itself by 6 strands of sinew that extend out from the hide and meet in the centre where they are attached to a small piece of antler that also serves as a holder while the drum is being played. The painted image on the face of the drum is a black and red stylized fish with a forked tail, small black dorsal fin, three barbel-like extensions above its two large eyes and an open mouth displaying a set of sharp, pointed teeth.


Peter Ajello purchased the drum and drumstick from the Buschlen Mowatt Galleries, c. 1992.
