Harps
« on: October 18, 2013, 05:02:53 PM »
Harps is said to be one of the old school musical instruments. Even before Christ era, harps already existed. Did the government made a point to preserve these harps?

Yes. Amazingly, 4,5000 years ago in ancient Egypt, an archaic arched harp were found and believe it or not some of which are preserved in museums around the world.  There's also exact descendant of that ancient Egyptian arched harp that is still working well as of today‚Äôs time. How amazing that?

Yes. Actually, if ever there's found any musical instrument not only the harps, the government are taking charge of coordinating the antique musical instrument to the museum where they are supposed to allocate. This also applies to all. Everything that made the history shall be preserved and be kept with right caring.
