Why is it a female holding the blue flute in the picture yet it says that only the male leader plays it? -- User:Appparition
That's a good question. That's the image given in the book though, and the text is summarized from it. I was wondering that myself... but it's the only picture of the Blue Flute, and quite detailed.. --McRawffles 01:53, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Quoting from the book: "the larger size of these instruments..." and "the blue flute of Neytiri's clan...". Gathering from that i'm guessing that there is others of these flutes, and the one that was supposedly wrought from a branch of Hometree by Eywa is played by the male clan leader for that reason. Maybe the others are played by the Tsahik because it is a device to communicate with Eywa and seeing as it is their job to interpret Eywa, that maybe why they put a female with the flute. But that theory has many holes and i'm not even sure that there is multiple flutes. Another is that the artist was working really late at night and forgot that the Na'vi holding the flute is meant to be male or he wasn't told...(It seems that their was a rush to make the book, because there is quite a few grammatical/spelling mistakes in the text). OOORRR whenever they got the information about the specs of the flute, a female Na'vi gave the info to them, but gave the heights/widths by comparing them with herself so they don't have the measurements against a male. Other then that, your guess is as good as mine as to why the Na'vi isn't a male. --IWantheUltimateChange 11:51, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
terran analogue Edit
I wonder, what is the closest terran analogue of this flute? Maybe, prototype/inspiration.
