Chordophones, stringed instruments with vertically notched or pierced bridges are found only along the African coast from Senegal to Angola. The unique bridge seen here on this kora lifts the strings on a plane perpendicular to the body instead of parallel to it. Constructed of a calabash resonator covered with sheep or goat hide and bearing nylon strings secured around a wooden neck, the West African kora combines features of the harp and the lute.

The most sensual instrument of them all- the kora; sounds a bit like a harp/harpsichord/sitar all at once. Kora Mamadou Koyate (bridge by Djimo Koyate)

Mandora or chitarino, ca. 1420  Northern Italy (Milan?) Boxwood and rosewood. There are three surviving examples of this mysterious type of instrument from the early fifteenth century, of which the one exhibited here is the most elegant. Originally the instrument would have been strung with four or five strings, but whether it was played with a bow or plucked remains unclear.

Apollo Lyre - This instrument, the only known example of its kind, was probably inspired by the melophone, which a French player presented in a concert in New York in 1841. The upward-pointing handles produce pressure and suction to sound a diatonic scale, as in an accordion or harmonica.

Mens shoes 1690-1700 French, silk and leather  Men's adornment was every bit imbued with the elegance, tactile variance, and ostentation that marked women's clothing of the era. The fashionable eighteenth–century man was expected to convey a certain grace, and was required to enjoy the fine arts, music, and dancing. The romantic curviture of these shoes encourages the voyeuristic eye, each arc paralleled by the sensuality of the male arch and calf.
