Donated By: Donick Cary, Emmy-Award winning writer/producer (Letterman /Simpsons / Parks and Recreation /Silicon Valley)

Pre-Columbian, Colombia, Narino, ca. 1250 CE. Beautiful and musical too, a Narino pottery flute of a shape akin to an abstract seashell form, decorated with bichrome red and cream negative resist, a Nariño signature technique, featuring an abstract rendering of a fox in composite profile on the body and an eight-pointed star on the circular terminus. Four blow/finger holes for creating sweet, dulcet sounds - two perforations through one end for suspension as well. A fabulous Pre-Columbian wind musical instrument! Size: 6.25" L x 2.625" W (15.9 cm x 6.7 cm)

Provenance: Ex-Private Smith collection, Atlanta, GA

Making music happen since 2009…

Today, Musack's mission is to give kids and teens a voice through music by providing guitars, drums, and support for music teachers - wherever the need arises.

But back in 2009, Emmy-Award winning writer/producer Donick Cary (Letterman /Simpsons / Parks and Recreation /Silicon Valley) began Musack with a simple vision - raise money to fund musical programs for his hometown high school on Nantucket Island. After a rash of teen suicides on the island, Donick thought about how he and his friends got through their teen years. Music.

Musack continues to make music happen around the world with support from people like you. All lots offered for sale in today’s fundraising auction have been donated by celebrities, non-celebrities, and local businesses. Help us help our kids - bid high, bid often!
