  Most of the bark has been removed from this unsplit Olive Branch Flute, (Olea europaea), exposing the beautiful, finely finished wood grain.  Measuring 21 3/4" in length, it is clearly, accurately and soulfully tuned to an F# minor pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing three upper register notes as well as the Gypsy Scale.  A small knot hole in this branch has been inlaid with crushed Serpentine stone.  Deer leather lacing with Serpentine and Brass beads secures the bird to its nest.  To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted with a Cedar shoe, and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber.  Olive is a very dense wood, so this flute weighs in at 14.65 ounces.  The branch for this flute was gathered sustainably, with respect and prayer, from an abandoned Olive grove that grows within the San Marcos Creek watershed of California.
