The lute

Some years ago I asked my parents to by me a guitar. The other girls at school were learning to play it and I wanted to join them. Well, for my birthday I had a present whose package looked like a guitar. It wasn’t. My parents thought that a lute would be much better….as it had many more strings! I still can’t understand how they came to that conclusion! Of course I never learnt to play the lute, and it has been a decorative item at my parents’ since then.

 

Lately I rescued it, because I thought it would be an interesting subject to photograph.

And also my kids love playing with it (although not really playing the instrument!)

It is interesting to see how something that had been gathering dust for years is having now a revival! 🙂
