Artwork Description

This whistle makes wierd howling sounds. The pitch is changed by placing the palm over the large hole in Gollum's tree, and moving it around to change the size of the hole.
This piece was purchased by a friend as a gift to a family member.

Thanks! Howler whistles are a lot of fun because with some, you can even play music on them. It sounds kind of like a saw, so it's rather eerie. You can also construct the whistle so that the sound will "flip" up to a higher harmonic, and that's where it really gets wierd sounding.

It's great! Looks very inventive, must be fun to play. The characters are very lively.
