Xavier is a master of creating instruments identical to those used by Pre-Hispanic peoples.† They are replicas of the instruments used by the Aztecs, Mayas, and other indigenous nations from Mexico. After researching museums and private collections he has been able to bring these ancient instruments back to life.† He remains faithful to the original traditions of his ancestors.† All reproductions are hand-crafted individual works of art.† Each clay flute is skillfully crafted by Xavier, then placed in a kiln and fired. His style of finishing makes them look as if they were excavated from the earth and centuries old.† Each instrument has itís own unique features. The flutes are very durable.
Duality Mayan Clay Flutes with 5 Chambers
These clay drone flutes are both dramatic in appearance and sound. They are one of the most beautiful multi-chambered creations that Xavier has invented. The original Mayan flutes are not this elaborate. They were very simple flutes, much smaller in size, not like this large creation.
When played the clay warms making a haunting and spiritual tone. The two long chambers create a five-hole drone flute.† Two additional small chambers near the mouthpiece are bird whistles.† They each have three finger holes. In the center is a wind whistle that replicates the scream of howling wind. By having everything contained in one flute, the player doesnít have to pick up any other ocarinas or flutes while playing.
We have two flutes to offer.† One features a skull representing the sacred circle of life and death.† The other is a Mayan face of a warrior who represents life to give the flutist strength and power.† Each flute includes face symbols that are the guardian spirits of the flute.† The emotions dance in spiritual forms when you play this amazing flute, because you feel and hear the ancient voices of the past.
