Magar shaman drum Nepal
„All shamanic drums are frame drums made of a wooden lath bent in a circular or oval shape and a membrane stretched over this frame. The drum’s numerous functions—as a musical instrument accompanying the recitation of mythical songs, as a pacemaker of ritual dances, as a vehicle on which the shaman travels through space, as a defensive and assault weapon against negative powers, as a diagnostic and prognostic instrument—make it a kind of all-purpose companion to its owner.“ Excerpt from - Michael Oppitz - Forschungen an den Rändern der Schrift.
