Cela ressemble un peu à  un accordéon.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it does, Martine...an early version!
Wonderful capture smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Cherry.
beautifully composed, Ginnie. i like the instrument crafted in this way.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. It reminds me of a sand sculpture.

I can imagine an accordian orchestra, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Ray. I suppose many of us could join in! smile

Wonderful composition and I like the light here. I doubt that people will notice my joyful sound wink...
Ginnie Hart: You have that chaotic cacophony at work, driving you crazy. I pray you will hear a few joyful sounds today...and maybe even make a few yourself!

How very interesting Ginnie. I presume it to be a representation of an actual instrument, although I've never seen one quite like this before
Ginnie Hart: Most items in this museum were from the Roman period, Chris, but do keyboards like this go that far back???? It amazed me.
Wouah..superbe et pas commun du tout !
Bone journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I know, Claudine. I wonder how old it is???
Vraiment une oeuvre magnifique superbement sculptée. Très beau Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. It reminds me of a sand sculpture.
mama's got a squeeze box she wears on her chest lalala.... what a cool statue! i like this shot, way to frame it!!
Ginnie Hart: A squeeze box, indeed. My mom played the accordion whenever she traveled and needed accompaniment (and couldn't carry the piano or organ with her). Happy memories. Thanks.
The Rick Wakeman of his day
Ginnie Hart: So, I had to Google Rick Wakeman. HA! Sorry I didn't know who he is!

The beauty of a picture like this is that we can stare at a detail and understand it so much better. That musical instrument is wonderful Ginnie, and so well carved.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad, for your "detailed" comment. With those pipes it's like a portable organ.

Magnifiques détails
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP. (I'm gingerly trying your posts again...with a new spyware service. So far so good.)
Quite a strange thing to include in a sculpture but it's very well done.
Ginnie Hart: It does make you wonder, Brian, doesn't it!

It could be an accordion, or a harmonium (pump organ), or something I have never heard of. But mind you, since it is made out of stone, there will be no cacophony as the best it can do is 'donk' if it ever happened to be dropped.
Ginnie Hart: HA! You are way ahead of me, Louis, as far as donking and dropping are concerned. Because of the pipes, it does seem to be the forerunner of an organ, for sure. Most interesting.
This must be the first accordion whistle.
Ginnie Hart: Now that's a new one, Mary...thinking of this as a whistle. HA!

That looks a bit like a miniature organ, presumably had pumped in one way like the Scottish bagpipes. For its age, the carving is quite detailed.
Ginnie Hart: I was astounded by it, Alan.
What a cool accordion? Interesting!
Ginnie Hart: For how old it must be, who knows what it is, Robin??? It could even be a miniature organ because of the pipes?
A wonderful shot. That beautiful statue has great light hitting it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. You can see why it stood out for me.
Ha ha.. True!
Make more noise now, we don't have to wait till Friday.

Two more days to go...
Ginnie Hart: And now the weekend is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A good week for statues....
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I assume so, Larry?!

The hands are so expressive. How do they do that????
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Bonnie. I'd love to know how old this is.
i am very impressed Ginnie... thanks for sharing that ....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks and you're welcome, Peter.
