Changes in Perception and Self-Identification: Symbolism of the Harp and the Carnyx, curated by Amelia Parlier

This exhibit contains ancient "Celtic" instruments and explores the relationship between what is viewed as quintessential Celtic instruments, the carnyx and harp, and perceptions of how these reflect a so-called Celtic spirit or culture. There are harps over 500 years old, carnyces over 2000 years old and depictions of the two in both present and ancient times.
