This beautifully decorated snake is another
addition to the wide range of animal that are
represented among the ocarina, a form of flute.
Here the mouthpiece is represented at the mouth
of the snake with holes to change the tune on
either side of the body. The smooth earthenware
is glazed and then painted with subtle hues of
red and brown. The geometric patterns remain
uniform throughout in a series of diamond
shapes that are carried out solely on the top
portion of the piece. Each ocarina is unique in its
design yet their charm runs throughout each
piece, making them a creative and charming
addition to any collection.
