  • SHAMAN DRUM FIGURES A great number of our jewellery represent motives from ancient sami shaman drums , called runebomme in Norwegian. A runebomme was made of tree and reindeer skin. The shaman, noaidi, painted magic drawings on the drumhead. When using the runebomme the noaidi placed a small piece of reindeerhorn in the middle of the drumhead. It began to move around on the drumhead when the drum was beaten. From the combination of the different drawings, which the piece of horn touched on its way around the drumhead, the noaidi could tell the future and predict hunting luck. The drawings on the drumhead were painted in a certain system, a cosmos containing goddesses, the sun, a hunter on ski and the noaidi with his drum. On nearly every drum one can find drawings of animals like bears, mooses, beavers, fishes, birds and many different reindeers.
