Description

This classical lyre is a simple stringed instrument made out of a golden-coloured wood. It has a hollow body that acts as a sound resonator. Extending from this sound-chest are two raised hollow arms that curve both outwards and forward. They are connected near the top by a crossbar or yoke. An additional crossbar, fixed to the sound-chest, forms the bridge which transmits the vibrations of the strings. The strings (probably made of animal gut) are stretched between the yoke and bridge.
