UNUSUAL STRINGED INSTRUMENT

This stringed instrument, carved from a flat piece of wood, is surmounted with two figures, a male and female.

The flat body of the instrument has been attractively decorated with a series of abstract freelance decorations. The strings of the instrument are wire and fastened through a series of holes positioned at the top and bottom of the shaft.
