Nestled within the petals of a flower, an aged man, likely an ancestral figure, gazes straight ahead, arms folded gently over his abdomen. The vividly painted but delicate features are characteristic of Jaina-style ceramic figurines. The flower stem is hollow, and its open end functioned as the whistle’s mouthpiece. The stem connects to the torso and head, which act as resonating chambers. The small size of the chamber produces a high, shrill sound.
