A.D. 400-700 Click to View Image Album This is a magnificent antique PRE-COLUMBIAN BAHIA STANDING FEMALE FOUR TONE FLUTE, Ecuador, circa 400 – 700 AD. This superb female figural flute projects the beauty achieved by the ancient Ecuadorian potter that fashioned her. This fantastic mold-made hollow figure will emit a whistling sound by covering the one or more of the four holes in her body and by blowing through the hole in the top of her head. She stands with open hands held to her chest below her breasts, wearing segmented bracelets and necklace, ear and nose ornaments, and wearing a headdress. It measures 10 ¼” high, 4” wide and has been reassembled from several original pieces.
