Rare Death Whistle by Xavier
Never Offered Before Now

Rare Death Whistle by XavierXavier is recognized as an authority in the reproduction of ancient Mayan and Aztec clay flutes and instruments. Until now his original clay Death Whistles were not available even directly from him. He has graciously offered us the opportunity to represent them. They can not be found anywhere else in the world. We are honored to be able to make them available to you.
We just received a new shipment of his Death Whistles and sold two of them before we could post them online. Xavier has added a medium size Death Whistle at a lower price point so now you can choose between the large Death Whistle or the Medium Death Whistle.

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 Death Whislte 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 it’s own unique features.

A recent viral YouTube video featuring Xavier Quijas Yxayotl demonstrating his Death Whistle has created a surge of interest in this remarkable instrument.  We have received several requests for it.  But, up until now Xavier has never offered his Death Whistle for sale.  Each skull shaped whistle offers the chilling and fascinating howl that is described as the ‘scream of a thousand corpses’. These are authentic replicas of the original ancient instruments the Aztecs played just before they were sacrificed to the gods. Some historians believe that the Aztecs used to sound the death whistle in order to help the deceased journey into the underworld. Tribes are said to have used the terrifying sounds as psychological warfare, to frighten enemies at the start of battle. 

Today these instruments are used for personal enjoyment and to implement sound effects in playing and recording music.

My second flute from OFS arrived on June 25-09 (My first flute is the stunningly breathtaking dream flute created by Jeff Calavan) and I must say that it is simply an absolutely wonderful "Low B" flute from "Stellar" with a rich robust and deep resonance. I just love it. I can't wait to bounce all of its acoustics off the NYC's subway tiles! I've ordered flutes, and quivers and a microphone from you guys and all of your products have been just totally incredible. JoAnn and Jeff thank you so much I know I'll be ordering stuff from you guys for years to come!!!
