I have been in Sorrow's kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows, with a harp and sword in my hands.
~Zora Neale Hurston

Isn't that a great quote? So vivid. For Art Thursday, harps:

Two seated angels making music
Gherardo Starnina (fl. 1398–1409)

by Edward Okuń (1872–1945)

A Song of the Sea
by Amalie Bauerlë

An Egyptian man is playing a large harp adorned with the figurehead of a woman

The Concert of the Angels, ca 1608-1614
by El Greco

The War Between the Frogs and the Mice
by Theodor Kittelsen

What a variety of harp art work!

Couldn't decide if the player in Concert was giving a come-hither or a get-away-from-me look. :-)

Loved the frog one...but I wondered where the mice figured in.

The harp and handpan music was really nice...very good new age stuff.
