Guiro, Musical Instrument, Colima - MT.139,Origin: Colima - Western Mexico,Dimensions: 7.5" (19.1cm) high,Collection: Pre Columbian,Condition: Extra Fine. This beautifully carved and intriguing instrument (a guiro) was clearly a highly prized ritualistic possession would have been worn around the neck by the priest who would have played it. Even after many centuries when a stick is run across it it plays an enthralling and compelling rhythm. Both the human face and the zoomorphic avian figure at the other imply and look like they are singing to the rhythm and tunes of the guiro.
