About the materials of the drum —
Elks represents the West on the Medicine Wheel – Water, emotions, the shadow self, and Autumn. Elk Medicine gives us stamina and endurance — the "don't give up" attitude.
The vibration of Elk opens the third Chakra, the belly, our center of Self — our self esteem and self expression.
Elk also represents friendship as it is a communal animal, hanging out with members of the same sex except during mating season.
Maple wood contains both Feminine and Masculine energy.
Maple effects the Emotional/Mental bodies and helps to focus unconditional love toward yourself and affirm your own gifts to Self and to others. Maple is often used to enhance intellectual pursuits, acquiring knowledge and communication. It is also used as a representation of love, prosperity, life and health, as well as general abundance.
