The face of the Maya/Aztec culture, the death whistle.
This is an authentic Death Whistle, it makes the real noise, it is hand crafted!!
It is NOT 3D Printed
These clay whistles, flutes, are replicas of ancient sculptures found in Maya and Aztec culture, many found in ancient tombs by archeologists, when they where first found, experts believed they where toys, but later found out most where war artifacts used to scare their enemies away, there is a wide variety of whistles, from the animal shaped that come in different sizes and shapes and can be used as flutes, skulls that represent the sound of death, or a human scream, and Jaguar heads that make an incredible jaguar roar.
there is also a skull that makes la llorona scream, also known as "The weeping Woman" la llorona is very famous in Latin American Folklore
The instruments are known as “whistles of death” because historians believe they were used to help guide sacrificial victims on their journey to the afterlife, the sacrifice of a human life was the ultimate offering of blood to the gods, and the most important Maya rituals culminated in human sacrifice, becoming a sacrifice in our culture meant the highest honor.
most of the time we see death as unbearable or scary, it is only a bridge to the afterlife, and these whistles where used as the road maps to get there.
