A Grrr8 Singer Deserves a Beautiful Eagle Diver
I got two eagle diver Ocarinas and what a precious gift! Handmade and solid as it will accompany many musicial outings. Thank you Georgina Cabrera, for you great musicianship. Now we have to learn how to use it! We live in Venice Beach, so have to practice on the shoreline.
My daughter loves it. The high notes actually work and its very cute! I also love the attention in the packaging and the beautiful wrapping.

Ceramic Turtle Dove Ocarina Crafted in Mexico, "Turtle Doves"$39.99
Crafted by hand from ceramic and given a rustic finish, two lovely turtle doves make a musical addition to your home. Mexican artisan Georgina Cabrera creates this instrument in the style of pre-Hispanic ocarinas. The doves feature holes in their tails for blowing and two holes in the front for playing different notes.
Please note: Variations in the firing process may result in a slightly different color and finish; however, this will not affect the overall design of the piece.
Handcrafted Ceramic Pre-Hispanic Puppy Ocarina Flute, "Pre-Hispanic Puppy"$19.99
Wagging a cheerful greeting from the distant past, a pre-Hispanic puppy seems to smile. His rounded form is characteristic of the ceramic dogs found in shaft tombs throughout what is now the state of Colima. These exceptional figurines are highly prized, and represent scenes of daily life in pre-Hispanic Mexico. Georgina Cabrera recreates the canine as a terracotta ocarina, a whistle-like flute believed to have been used in ancient ceremonies.
Terracotta Barking Dog Pre-Hispanic Style Ocarina Flute, "Barking Dog"$23.99
Baying at the moon, this plump little dog replicates those found in shaft tombs throughout Western Mexico. Georgina Cabrera depicts the a cheerful, barkless species prized by ancient peoples. Sculpted in clay as funerary offerings, they accompanied their masters in death to aid the soul in crossing rivers of blood along the road of the dead. This canine reproduction becomes a terracotta ocarina, a whistle-like flute believed to have been used in pre-Hispanic ceremonies.
Handmade Rustic Ceramic Whistle in Beige from Mexico, "Rustic Cross in Beige"$23.99
Resembling a cross, this whistle is designed by Mexican artisan Georgina Cabrera. She crafts the whistle by hand from ceramic, given a rustic finish in beige. A hole on one side allows the whistle to be worn as a pendant, much like the ocarina pendants worn by pre-Hispanic cultures.
