This exquisite cedar flute was handcrafted by Ho-Chunk artist Ira Funmaker, a skilled woodworker who is known for the quality of his instruments. Lightweight, sturdy and easy to carry, this flute is an excellent choice for novice musicians just learning to play.
The carved bear sitting atop serves as a toner and can be adjusted to produce a more airy sound. It is also an inspiring, decorative element as the eagle is particularly revered for their ability to fly so close to the heavens, carrying the prayers of the people to the spirit world. The Native American flute is known around the world for its haunting, plaintive sound and is said to bring balance to musicians and listeners alike. Connect with tradition and bring tranquility into your life with this beautiful instrument from one of today's finest flute makers.
Flute measures 25-1/4" long x 1-1/2" wide and comes with certificate of authenticity.
