Seller: tjpurcell2099 (216) 100%, Location: Saline, Michigan, Ships to: US, Item: 131939065284 Old pottery smells dank when wet; does not glow when exposed to UV light; and it shows signs of magnesium oxide staining - just like this one. Whistles and ocarinas are quite possibly the most widely-known and popular ceramic instrument of all time. Early inhabitants of Mesoamerica and South America were prolific whistle and ocarina makers for a period of several thousand years. The pre-Columbian inhabitants of America created some of the most complex and acoustically advanced instruments known to this day. Ocarinas in pre-Columbian America were usually highly decorated and often depicted human figures and animals. Condition: Exceptional condition if this is pre-columbian clay pottery. Ocarina plays when blown.
