Contemporary terracotta frame drum. The frame is of slightly micaceous red clay, and the rim is slightly concave in cross-section. The membrane is of parchment and is still quite tightly attached although there is a small rip near one edge; it is held on by twine, and by split twigs, the end of which protrude or one-inch intervals.
