The Kashyyykk clarion was a type of musical wind instrument created by the Wookiee species of the planet Kashyyyk. It was considered a piece of cultural art but also had an important function, as its bellow—which could be heard as far as twenty kilometers away from where it was blown—was used to summon Wookiees to gatherings. The clarion was decorated with patterns of hand-hammered bronzium plating and an orange lacquer finish, with cerulean gemstones set into the body.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Kashyyyk clarion was created as a prop for the film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, although it is not visible in the final cut of the film released in 2005. The instrument first appeared in the new canon in the 2016 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia, which was written by Adam Bray, Tricia Barr and Cole Horton. In Legends, the instrument had previously appeared in the 2005 reference book Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith The Visual Dictionary, which was written by James Luceno.
