The sound of a clay wistle:
Clay toys are typical for northern and central parts of Ukraine.
They were traditionally made mostly by the wives and children of pottery masters. Thus the children learned the pottery craft. Often potters gave the clay toys as a change for buying their pots or clay dishes at the markets and fairs. Therefore, the master called that staff "coin".
The best known and the easiest to make have always been clay whistles in the form of a bird.
The bird is a symbol of dreams and creativity, if you play with birds and believe in your dream it will come true. Birds are the creatures that are the closest to the world of the gods.
Here is Zozulytsya, a revived image of a clay bird fistula. Its symbolism brings us to 7 thousand years ago, during Trypiliya civilization, the heyday of natural crafts. Zozulytsya is unique because it is an ancient musical instrument, a favorite toy of many generations, and a charm, which for centuries was used for protection against evil spirits.
