Maya Jaina Warrior Whistle

550 AD to 850 AD

7″ tall

An incredible Maya Jaina whistle figure from Campeche, Mexico. This piece is made from a mold and depicts a warrior or ruler dressed in battle regalia. He wears a fantastic headdress in the shape of a Jaguar and his face is shown through the open jaws. Large earspools that dangle down to his shoulders along with a decorated loincloth complete his ensemble. He holds a large club in his right hand. 

Mold made figures such as these, brought Maya art to the masses. They were readily accessible to all and depict individuals rather than the Gods. 

The whistle still functions and produces a nice mellow tone. 

Ex Robert Banks collection from Bethesda, Maryland. Collected in the 1970s.
