Lovely Celtic knot work and a fun transformation of the bird into an instrument make Harpist by ~Powelly74 an excellent work of art. ( Suggested by sincebecomeswhy and Featured by Astralseed )

What's that?
Crayons? Texture? White gel pen? :)

Good work.

Thankyou. Alas me being totally crap at sport is one of the reasons I spend so much time painting, and my football knowledge is severely limited. However you can find me in the pub during England games, weeping into real ale when we lose on penalties :)

I'd love to see a harp that actually looked like this.

Could it be played? No idea. But if nothing else it would make a great art piece!

I kind of like the idea of the animals / instruments playing themselves, this one using some sort of complex internal mechanism. Yeah, I spend too much time thinking about this stuff... :)

Thankyou. My musical prowess is limited to three-chord folk songs on guitar and banjo, so I'm in awe of you playing the harp.
