Painted Animal Clapper

Duck Tails

It's a clear spring day, with the sun just starting to warm the water of the lake. A flock of ducks is making circles on the surface, paddling and bobbing for food. When a mallard swoops in and makes a perfect landing, touching down to a round of enthusiastic applause from his fellow fowls.

Well, maybe real ducks don't clap their wings, but this handcrafted wooden instrument is worth some cheers! Hand carved from monkey pod wood by artisans in Bali, with a sculptural duck head and tail, it's covered with wildly colorful painted flourishes. The center of the device is composed of a series of wooden panels, all jointed in the middle. When you grab it by one end and shake it up and down, the panels slap into each other in rapid succession, creating a unique sound that's part duck quack, part snare drum. It is produced using Fair Trade practices that help sustain the environment while providing sustainable wages to the craftspeople. Whether it's used to teach children about the animal kingdom, as a toy for playtime adventures, or as a unique addition to a musical performance, this unlikely duckling is always ready to take flight. Handmade in Bali, Indonesia.
