Some of the bark has been left on this 6 holed unsplit Olive branch flute, (Olea europaea), contrasting nicely with the finely finished wood grain. Measuring 21 1/8" in length, with four tuning/direction holes, this flute is brightly and sweetly tuned to a G# minor pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper octave notes. Knot holes have been inlaid with crushed malachite. Deer lacing with malachite and brass beads holds the bird to the nest, the bird fitted with a redwood shoe to aid against wetout. The branch for this flute was gathered from an abandoned olive grove that grows along San Marcos Creek, in San Marcos, CA.
