Some of the surface and underlayer bark has been left on this unsplit, finely finished Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia) branch flute.  All of the tiny knots have been inlaid with crushed malachite stone.   Measuring 22" in length and tuned to an F# minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, it plays 3 upper octave notes and has a wonderful controlable warble on the fundamental note.  Elk lacing with malachite and red horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest.  To aid against wetout, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber.  The branch for this one of a kind flute was gathered with love and respect at the beautiful Descanso Gardens.
