Wood. 7"H x 2" W x 2" D
Whistles such as this one epitomize the African aesthetic dear to us at Archeo: useful objects manifested as art. This small, precious sculpture is all the more beautiful for having been held and loved by the human hands who owned and played it. We also appreciate the Cubist sensibility it conjures, like a sculpture by Braque, Brancusi, or Picasso who were all inspired by such African art.
