Nuna / Burkina Faso
Wood. 9" H x 2" W x 2" D
Whistles such as this one epitomize the African aesthetic we value at Archeo: useful objects manifested as art. This graceful, slender piece is even more beautiful from being held and played by an owner, long ago. Note the Cubist sensibility as well as the personality it conveys with its anthropomorphic design. Procured from a Belgian collection, it has a direct lineage to the Nuna tribe.
