Functional conical wood trumpet - carved from single piece. Carved knob-like mouthpiece at narrow end. Pair of opposing hemispherical dent carved into bell end.. Carved "fist-like" Maya glyph juts out at roughly the mid point of the instrument - fingerlike appendages, with dots on the digits and hole for carrying strap of heavy twisted and knotted cotton fiber. Mouthpiece end covered with plaited leather strips. Painted Maya heiroglyphs at bell end. Created based on representation of so-called "trumpet" on NA11701.
Made by and gift of Carlos Ramiro Asturias Gomez, 1992
