Double-headed, rattle drum with an hourglass-shaped body made from two inverted caps of human skull, with glued animal skin membranes. Around the waist of the body is a red cloth band from which two fabric-covered pellets are suspended with cord. When playing, these pellets are meant to strike the drum heads. A small handle strap extends from the same cloth.
