Sean Rising Sun Flanagan is a Native American artist and traditional drum maker from the Taos Pueblo located at the steps of the majestic Sangre De Cristos mountains in northern New Mexico. His wonderful works have found homes around the world and can be seen at several galleries and museums around the country. Renown for his painted drums and stylized sculptures, Sean draws inspiration from the traditional images of his native roots. His Drums are traditionally made from deer, elk and buffalo hides and are painted with a remarkable sense of design that unites deep tradition with the contemporary. Sean's stylized sculptures and design motifs are integrated with form and color that result in a strong and vibrant balance that can be described as geometrical and organic at the same time.
They can range from a couple feet in height to 12 feet high. They can stand as a focal point in a courtyard or be attached to a wall.
