The Bass Drummer of our wonderful piece of artwork with motives of the Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia: Smoking man series "Flute players and drummers of the Virginia State Garrison Regiment".
Flute players and drummers were an important part of the American military in the 18th century. The instruments served as signals for the infantry and spread the commands to the soldiers in the camp and on the field during combat. The steady rhythm and spirited melodies also directed the soldiers' thoughts away from the lengthy marches and battles.
The flute players and drummers of Colonial Williamsburg, also known as the field musicians of the Virginia State Garrison Regiment, continue the tradition of military music to this day. Since 1958, visitors to the historic museum park have been able to enjoy the musical performances. The musicians wear the same regimental coats as other military units, but with one striking difference: the colors they wear are reversed to those of their fighting colleagues.
Smoker were mentioned for the first time around 1830. The production of smokers and their use are today a firm component of the folk art and the customs of the Christmas season in the Erzgebirge. For this purpose, a lighted incense candle is placed on the lower part of the wooden figure, which is divided into two parts. The upper part is hollowed out and is put on the first part. The smoking candle burns inside the usually turned smoking man, the smoke rises and comes out of the mouth hole.
Cone size: regular sized cones (we recommend cones from Knox)
