Jim carefully paints, with acrylic paints, under the rawhide lacings and the drum covers on top and bottom. Each warrior is individual and they have a horse dance stick in their hand.
Jim has adorned the drum with leather dangles, glass beads, tin cones, red wool cloth and imitation feathers. He has also added a miniature shield with a buffalo image painted on it. The shield is adorned with glass beads and miniature imitation feathers.
The piece is signed by the artist.
