Tambourine, Noah's Ark by Yair Emanuel
This hand painted tambourine by famed artist Yair Emanuel depicts the biblical scene of animals being loaded onto Noah's Ark as the flood encroaches upon them. This piece of musical beauty is made of wood around the frame, brass for the zills, and genuine leather is carefully stretched across the wood to complete this design that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but musically as well.
Size: 9" x 2"
