The Tungusic Shamanic Drum Lamp
This lamp throws light on the spiritual practices of the Tungus people of Siberia. They practice Shamanism, which is a way of connecting the physical world with the spiritual. In this music and sound plays an immensely important role. The shaman is that enabling guide who facilitates this connection of freedom and ecstasy. Using the drum geometry and form as a metaphor, the light created by us seeks to transfer the energy of the beating of the drum by the shaman to reach an altered state of consciousness. Much fascination surrounds the role that the acoustics of the drum play to the shaman.
