God took clay and created human. Ancient Latvian in-between making clay pots created svilpaunieks - just to brighten up someone's day. And to this day we still do it. Is it a tradition? Certainly! But it's also a reminder not to forget to be happy while doing the important things!
Latvians see birds as messengers. A lark calls to weddings, a tomtit brings news from soldiers, a nightingale wakes the ploughmen in spring mornings, an oriole is the herald of rain but a corncrake foresees rye harvest. Let it bring the message you're expecting!
This clay bird is not something to put on a shelf to collect dust on. You can play the whistle by covering and uncovering the holes and creating archaic melodies of 3-4 notes which will take you back to the olden days.
Forest in spring is peaceful. But as you lay down on the moss, everything changes and becomes alive. Experience the nature's sounds, movements, playfulness, worries and love. Nature is the kingdom of contrasts. You will see it if you take a break from your busy life. Let this little owl be the key to this kingdom!
