Mayan Death Whistle

Like most civilisations of the ancient world, the Mayans had their rituals at death and the process into the next life of as many called it "the Underworld". The death whistle was part of the Mayan ritual and many thoughts are expressed as to its purpose. Was it to scare away demons as the deceased entered the next life or was it just part of the ritual. Some civilisations employed professional corners who wailed and cried out at the funeral, others such as the ancient Egyptians were much more complex.  An interesting item for starting discussions on life after death.
