Well, if you hadn't told it was an instrument I'd not have known, even seeing the real thing in V2. It makes (or rather, you make) a superb abstract.

V1 is recognisably a musical instrument to me, rather more so than V2 in fact! Bill is on his way, he has a theory...

V2 reminds me of some bamboo building scaffolding from the Phillipines or another Far East land.
V1 , my first impression was a pile of rib bones.
Very good abstract is the result, in any case Helen. And so good to see the starting point for the finished product.

Since Moira has put me on the spot I've checked my resources in vain. However, it has some similarity with an Angklung (a sophisticated rattle from Java) - unless the various elements swing ito contact with each other, which makes it a clapper rather than a rattle! It's from the Far East in any case.
A highly imaginative manipulation that retains the atmosphere of the real thing.

Excellent manipulated abstract, Helen. In fact, v2 could be abstract 'cos in reallity I haven't got a clue either!! Congrats on the GEA.

One of the many reasons I love this site. You learn something new everyday!
V1 does look like a tortured rib cage to me.....too much time spent in trauma nursing I guess!

I've never seen an instrument like this before! An excellent interpretation of it in V1, Helen, and nice to see how it actually looks in V2 Wink
