Awesome as all your other sculptures…
In the picture I can’t see the strings of the harp, is it just the picture quality or are they actually missing?

Syeret, the strings are too thin to do them from wood. I prefer projects made only by wood.
Steve and Syeret, Thanks for your comments.

A very intricate, detailed, and viable capture of the harpist.
Looking forward to see your next project!

I like the “feeling” in your carving…I keep imagining the song that she plays.
