This is the second such instrument I have made, and it is carved from Mulberry wood, with a Goatskin head. The rather casual-sounding name I use here to distinguish it from its prototype, The Heart of Jesus. Neither name is in any way an attempt to promote or discredit its namesake. I was once badly injured, in shock, out of body and in a very bad way. A healer was summoned who invoked a presence called 'the Sacred Heart of Jesus'. The creation and playing of these instruments has been my way of showing gratitude.
