Whistle; double flutes

Zoomorphic whistle, double duct flute. This glazed ceramic is modelled as a bird in flight. The mouthpiece of the whistle extends beyond the forked tail and legs that are painted on the top surface. The mouthpiece has has two round mouth holes at its flat end, with two ducts that run parallel through the body terminating in two mouths or windows positioned above the wings. A large hole passes throught the bird’s chest and two smaller holes pass vertically through the base of the tail, but none of these connect to the chambers and may be for attachments.
