of peace since ancient times, the olive branch lends its spirit and
cultural significance to this very special Peace Flute.
Measuring 21 1/4" in length, this beautiful solid bore,
unsplit branch flute is
clearly and resonantly tuned to a mid range Fm
( A=440 ) pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper
notes. The bark has been artistically shaped, allowing its
various colors and
textures to express in contrast to the finely finished wood.
Knots and wood checks have been inlaid with green
turquoise. Elk leather lacing
with green turquoise and olive wood beads from Bethlehem, secures the
bird to its nest. To help prevent wetout, the bird has been
fitted with a cedar shoe, and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has
been designed into the air chamber. The branch for
this flute was gathered sustainably, with respect, gratitude and
prayer, from an abandoned olive grove in California.
