Used throughout Chinese history, the pigeon whistle is attached around the bird’s neck, and creates sound during flight as air rushes through the instrument (in this case the whistle is from a gourd).
You can just imagine how gorgeous and other worldly this would sound when thirty or more pigeons took flight- a flying orchestra.
We brought this out from our Learning Collections recently for a special table featuring artifacts from throughout Chinese history.

This was my first splatter paint project that I did for my girlfriend before she left the states. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait until she’s back so we can do more.
I think my selfie problem is getting out of hand..
This deserves at least a thousand notes !!
