Quarterly Raffle Flute
Anonymous graciously donated this quarter’s raffle flute. It is a Xavier Quijas Yxayotl clay flute and it is stunning. The main flute has five finger holes and produces a lovely warm sound. As it typical of Xavier’s flutes, it also has two higher, bird-like flute mechanisms that sound like ocarinas. They are located at the top of the flute, toward the main mouthpiece. The sound is produced by blowing into the slits. There is also a round hole at the top of the flute. When you blow into it, the sound is that of the death whistle. Its length is 27 inches. It is 3 inches across. It is truly an interesting flute and it is highly prized, like all of Xavier’s musical creations. Notice the exquisite detail of the faces on the flute.
Tickets are $5 each. You may purchase as many as you desire. The raffle lasts until May 27, 2020. The winner will be announced on May 31, 2020.
