Wind Instruments
























First is a collection of Central/South American ceramic ocarinas. The one in the upper right-hand corner is modern, from Chile, and quite musically accurate. The others are copies of older more primitive designs but still quite wonderful. Then pictured is an assortment of winds starting with a bizarre Tibetan horn fashioned from worked silver, copper, and carved yak bone, then a Turkish double reed instrument called a Duduk, followed by a Native American eagle bone whistle, a Native American flute, a ceramic side-blown flute, a wooden recorder, and a metal penny whistle. The next shot features a series of bamboo flutes from Southeast Asia know as suling,


and the last photo shows two variations on the pan-pipe theme.
