Edit This ceramic artifact is an ancient drum from the southern Andean region in what is now modern-day Peru. Dating from the 1st century AD this drum was produced by the Nazca culture. Archeological investigations lead us to believe that musical instruments in Nazca culture, such as this drum, were primarily ritual objects used for worship during group gatherings at the ceremonial center of Cahuachi.
Technical Evaluation Edit Located on the southern coast of modern-day Peru, the soil in the Andean region was enriched with abundant deposits of clay. By the 1st century, the use of clay to create art, vessels, and instruments had developed and been in practice for quite some time in the Andean region. In fact, much of Nazca ceramic culture derived from the Paracas , a preexisting society.
Archaeologists have discovered identical ceramic vessels including drums, that the Paracas had produced centuries before the Nazca. This Nazca drum is crafted to have a bulbous, sounding chamber in the center of the drum. At the base, there is a circular opening which was likely covered with a stretched skin.
The drum would be held upside down by the musician and the stretched skin would be hit in order to create sounds from the bulbous chamber. In the first century, the Nazca did not have the luxury of modern innovations such as the pottery wheel. All ceramic instruments, such as this drum, were hand crafted by the Nazca people. A tube of clay would be spiraled around a base in order to build up the shape of the drum. The walls of the drum were likely smoothed and thinned using a smooth stone or the potter’s hand.

The oldest such record comes from the Roman historian Tacitus in his Germania: Fuisse apud eos et Herculem memorant, primumque omnium virorum fortium ituri in proelia canunt. Sunt illis haec quoque carmina, quorum relatu, quem barditum vocant, accendunt animos futuraeque pugnae fortunam ipso cantu augurantur. Terrent enim trepidantve, prout sonuit acies, nec tam vocis ille quam virtutis concentus videtur. Adfectatur praecipue asperitas soni et fractum murmur, obiectis ad os scutis, quo plenior et gravior vox repercussu intumescat.

Single-headed drums typically consist of a skin stretched over an enclosed space, or over one of the ends of a hollow vessel. Drums with two heads covering both ends of a cylindrical shell often have a small hole somewhat halfway between the two heads; the shell forms a resonating chamber for the resulting sound. Exceptions include the African slit drum , also known as a log drum as it is made from a hollowed-out tree trunk, and the Caribbean steel drum , made from a metal barrel.
Drums with two heads can also have a set of wires, called snares, held across the bottom head, top head, or both heads, hence the name snare drum. On modern band and orchestral drums, the drumhead is placed over the opening of the drum, which in turn is held onto the shell by a “counterhoop” or “rim” , which is then held by means of a number of tuning screws called “tension rods” that screw into lugs placed evenly around the circumference.
The head’s tension can be adjusted by loosening or tightening the rods.

The original evil parts come from old China and its fox lore introduced to Japan between the 4th-7th centuries CE. The newer tamer parts, such as the big belly , belly drumming , giant scrotum , and sake bottle can be traced to late Edo-era Japan 18th th centuries , while the commercialized benevolent parts promissory note , straw hat emerged in Japanese artwork around the beginning of the 20th century. In general, the goofy-looking Tanuki we are familiar with today is a recent creation, mostly Japanese.
The Chinese influence on Japanese folklore, without doubt, is enormous. Yet the Japanese are equally adept at creating their own lore, as exemplified by their homespun Tanuki legends. In their earliest malevolent manifestations transmitted via Chinese fox lore to Japan by at least the 7th century CE , Tanuki assumed human form, haunted and possessed people, and were considered omens of misfortune. Many centuries later in Japan, they evolved into irrepressible tricksters, aiming their illusory magic and mystifying belly-drum music at unwary travelers, hunters, woodsmen, and monks.
Today, the Tanuki are cheerful, lovable, and benevolent rogues who bring prosperity and business success. Ceramic statues of Tanuki are found everywhere in modern Japan, especially outside bars and restaurants, where a pudgy Tanuki effigy typically beckons drinkers and diners to enter and spend generously a role similar to Maneki Neko, the Beckoning Cat, who stands outside retail establishments. In his modern form, the fun-loving Tanuki is commonly depicted with a big tummy , a straw hat , a bewildered facial expression he is easily duped , a giant scrotum , a staff attached to a sake flask , and a promissory note that he never pays.
