Product Origin

Jose Vitancio Humeres


This hand made clay ocarina bears an anthropomorphic form from Paracas era of Peruvian history. 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 whistles it produces two notes simultaneously creating a unique harmonic sound. Can be used to clear an energy field, healing work or shamanic trance. The whistle on this piece works with a strong sound. A functional whistling vessel and a brilliant piece of art. Made in Peru.

  • Recording of this vessel

     

     The first ocarina-like instrument appeared about 12,000 years ago, and not only did it appear in one place, but in different civilizations that were very far from each other. It has its origin in South, Central and the southern part of North America, but there was also a Chinese instrument very ocarina-like, called Xun. The Mayans, the Incans and the Aztecs all created clay ocarinas in the shape of birds or animals which they played along with other percussion instruments and dances. In the region of what is now Peru, the craftsmen made ocarinas also from clay, but they had the costume of painting the front part with different patterns and decorations; the Peruvian ocarinas could have the mouthpiece in the shape of an animal too. There was also some bird shaped ocarinas found in India about 5000 B.C.
