Ancient Clay Musical Tool.

During the Iron Age, music was used for entertainment, as a way of expressing one’s self, and in worship to God. Miriam played the tambourine as she celebrated God’s victory over the Egyptians, and David played the harp to sooth King Saul when he was disturbed. The Bible mentions a variety of musical instruments including both stringed instruments and percussion instruments, such as this musical tool.

“Then David and all the house of Israel played music before the Lord on all kinds of instruments of fir wood, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on sistrums, and on cymbals.” – 2 Samuel 6:5

This clay musical tool is simple, yet effective in its design. It features a round body with a looped handle. Inside the instrument are small beads that create a rattling noise when shaken. The handle allows the musician to either hold the instrument by hand or suspend it by a rope.
