Annotation
A pipe rolled from a birch bark tape, widening from the mouthpiece to the flare. Booningkoo, a quail-pipe for Manchurian wapiti, was also made from two halved of a willow trunk. Sometimes it was provided with a wooden mouthpiece with a bronze plate. It was only used for hunting, because its use in chanting and dancing was strictly forbidden by folk law.
