true artisans exist

Juha Jarvinen, a Finnish artist who makes HANDMADE authentic Shaman drums.
His work is beyond words. I can not begin to describe it, he is an artisan in every meaning of the word, a true authentic original soul. Really its astonishing what he creates!!!!

His idea was to create 100 drums all different, he says that the drums will find their lawful owner. As the drum is connected to the soul. the very heart of humans. He is inspired by ancient histories, these indeed are what original drums looked like in old times though some are more like art works

Spiritualities

Juha Jarrinen
Has found his Spiritual way
While also creating marvelous works.
You sense that he has achieved inner peace
While also keeping his feet on the ground.
He takes his time to let the wood speak to him
Just like the artist who looks at a block of marble
And while chiseling away finds the great wonder inside,
Just like Michelangelo did.
Jarrinen feels there will be the right and long lasting connection
Between a specific drum and the appropriate Shaman.
Michelangelo worked for a pope
A  different sort of spirituality
But his works are also there to be seen today.
