Dog-shaped Ocarina (Pre-Colonial Replica)


Celebrate the arts of the Andes past and future. The ocarina is an ancient wind instrument that can be traced back over 12,000 years. Variations of the ocarina were used by South and Central American, Indian and Chinese cultures. In the Andes, ocarinas were made of clay, and usually shaped like birds or animals. The ocarina was introduced to Europe in 1527 when Cortes sent a group of Aztec dancers and musicians to perform for Emperor Charles V.
