This is a Clay Jaguar Whistle very similar to the types used by ancient Central American Indians. It is unique in that it produces an amazing "growl" when blown into and the type of growl can be modified by blowing differently as well as by covering and uncovering the air escape. We have a wonderful video on how to do this on our videos link above. It is said that these whistles were originally used to lure big cats into a trap... hence the many Jaguar Warriors (and their clothing) of the Americas! Because they are hand made, there is a slight variance in look and sound of each and they are of course all amazing! Each include free domestic shipping within the USA and its territories as well as super inexpensive global shipping. See our shipping page for more info.
Clay Jaguar Whistle
Many Native People used to make clay whistles. They were very common in Central America and have been made to look and sound like just about anything. The whistles that we make look similar to some of the "old ones" and are fired using a modern version of an old Native American technique called reduction firing. Be certain to check out our video on how to use it!
