Seller: Top-Rated Plus Seller worldtraveler57 (3,406) 100%, Location: Miami, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 352798309004 The auction is for a Pre-Columbian Terracotta clay whistle. "The absence of a potter’s wheel gave all of these Pre-Columbian artisans the freedom to invent and experiment with structure and form, which makes their art so charming. One of the most delightful of all Pre-Columbian terra cotta art is the whistle. Once dismissed as toys, Pre-Columbian whistles are now seen as ancient American wind instruments that were vital to the life of the Mayan people, including the ruling elite. (Recently in Belize, a rich load of instruments was unearthed from a royal tomb, underscoring their importance.) The art of musical instrument making flourished throughout Mesoamerica and Central America until the Spanish conquest. The earliest pre-Columbian clay instruments, found on the present coast of Ecuador, date from approximately 500 BC." It measures 2" h x 1 3/4" w x 7/8" d. The whistle works and it is in excellent age commensurate condition.
