The Chinese ocarina: a musical instrument, a paperweight, and a classy decorative piece (ignore the white paint I accidentally smudged on it). It is useful, fun, and pretty. The multi-purpose features of this Chinese ocarina make it very desirable.
Furthermore, its shape gives the ocarina a symmetric vase-like design, a look that has a subconscious appeal to many viewers.
Made from either stone or wood, the ocarina is smooth and cool to the touch. It is usually expertly carved with intricate designs of nature.
