    You can see 2 moddoos on the links above, I will upload 2 more soon.

    These pages are about handmade wind instruments, made by Žilvinas Gaižauskas born in Vilnius/Lithuania.
    Saw is not used to split the wood. It's ment to be as natural as it can be. 
    The wood pieces are carefully chosen and are mostly found around the city.
    The instruments are ment to be of shamanic purpose. 


    Since I was a child I used to split pieces of wood in two and try to make a pipe. I was astonished when I first saw long and big wind instruments. Still I was just a child. My father being an artist introduced me to famous sculptors Matschinsky-Denninghoff so I became their assistant just like my father. I had done a lot of artworks at their place in Germany, they have taught me a lot about art.
    After many years of practicing different art forms I have met a few didgeridoo players in my second travel to Himalayas when I was 24years old. They explained me a bit about them. Since then it was always on my mind to make one. So I have started. And I don't know when I will stop. :emoticon-misc-018:

      Didn't know Lithuania had a digeridoo-type instrument as part of their heritage. Pretty cool looking!
