This elegantly painted shell shaped Narino whistle comes from Ecuador and dates C.A. 850 - 1500 A.D. It is mounted on a top quality metal stand which is included in the sale. The shell measures 2 3/4" in length by 2 1/2" in width. It has a small drill hole so that it could be worn around the neck. The base color is a warm brown tan and the geometric design elements are a rich dark brown. Geometric elements include triangles, fine-line work, stepped pyramids, and circular spiriling elements. The painting is excellent and finely detailed. The piece is in mint condition with no restoration or overpaint.
