 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 22 1/8" in length, with a 7/8" diameter sound chamber and four tuning/direction holes, this branch flute is clearly and accurately tuned to an F# minor pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper octave notes.  Knot holes have been inlaid with crushed serpentine.  Elk lacing with serpentine and brass beads holds the bird to the nest.  To aid against wetout, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe, for it's absorption qualities, and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber, covered over by the lacing.  The branch for this flute was gathered sustainably, with respect and gratitude, from an abandoned olive grove that grows along San Marcos Creek, in San Marcos, CA.
