MyMuthones is a silent, then thunderous roar like a downpour exploding on the ground. It’s impossible not to get petrified when bumping into this ancestral spirit with a few human traits, buck fur and beast’s movements. Nobody knows whether his arrival brings good luck but each step is announced by a monotonous bell sound that accompanies Sardinian life cycle since ages.
This wind chime is inspired by the Sardinian masks of Mamuthones respected since ages in rituals ensuring a fortunate passage from one season to another, from the old year to a new one. Their severe and firm face covered with a black cloth is a local symbol of the secular culture merging prehistoric beliefs with shepherds lifestyle. That’s why goat fur and bells carried on the back are inseparable elements. Our wind chimes are made of a natural Sardinian clay with glittery glass powder and include artisanal metal bells that together with the internal ceramic label emit two different sounds based on wind strength.
Height about 16,5 cm (6 1/2“) and 42 cm (16 1/2”) hemp cord above the ceramic element
Available in white or bric red version
