Product Origin

Jose Vitancio Humeres


Replica of a double-bodied whistling vessel with a bridge handle from the Vicús culture that represents a mummy whistling. It has a reverberant chamber that emits the notes RE and MI when filled halfway with water.

~

Sculpted by ethnomusicologist Jose Vitancio Humeres of Peru, it is a replica of an original design. "I think the sounds these instruments make were to create positive energy," says Vitancio Humeres. Constructed of two chambers, as well as a system of air ducts and aqueducts, the vessel is filled partially with water, and when held and tipped, pushes the air outward to create melodic sounds, through one or more whistle holes. Exquisitely made.

The whistle on this piece works with a strong sound. A functional musical instrument and a brilliant piece of art. Allow for slight variations.

Made in Peru.

Measures: 28 x 10 x 22 cm
