Ear Harps

Well the Aussie fight back didn't amount to enough and a lovely victory for England.  In the meantime I have been making ear harps, strange wooden things that are strung in a branch of a tree and a hollow ear trumpet is inserted into the branch, when one plays the strings and puts the trumpet to ones ear so the sound is amplified, and the beautiful sounds of the strings are heard.

Here are pictures of Louise Baker and myself enjoying the aforementioned sounds.  More of these to make over the ensuing days days before the bronze etching begins.
