Harp - Ram's Horn

Purchased in Souk in Luxor, Egypt, 1988

from Graciela's Notes

This instrument has an interesting shape and makes it more original with a ram’s horn neck. The strings are attached to five tuning pegs. The instrument caught my attention because of its unique shape. The man who made it agreed to sell it to me after much discussion. Thanks to the guide, who interpreted for me, finally made the "deal" and I was happy, happy. This happened at the Souk in Luxor, Egypt during my visit there in April 1988.
