Whistlers

Svilpaunieks is made of Latgalian red clay which is told to be one of the best in the world. It gives the bird its copper colour. By linking the sky with the earth and the air with the water, svilpaunieks' song comes to life with three different tones. Just place it to your lips and let the song enchant you.

The old Latvian tales tell the story of times when the God's sons married the Sun's daughters and people could understand animals and birds, when lakes were drifting in the air and the youngest son travelled the world to find happiness. "Go see and bring back the unknown," said the King and gave him a magic whistle...

Owl symbolises wisdom. Not only the knowledge and skills but also wisdom to see, feel and experience. Let the forest owlet bring you wisdom to see the little miracles in everyday life and appreciate them!

I created svilpaunieks larger in size and with more holes on its side so you could play a melody within one octave. My favourite songs for the svilpaunieks are lullabies, carols and folk songs.
