Kamanche 1880, Persia. The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Kamanche is a string or stringed instrument. In these musical instruments a stretched vibrating string produces the initial sound. They are called Chordophones as well. "Kamânche" consists of "Kamân" and "che". "Kamân" is a Persian name that means bow in English and "Che" is the Persian suffix to create a diminutive form, therefore the word "Kamânche" means "small bow". Kamanche is a bowed string instrument, so it means that a bow is used to stroke the strings, in order to create sound. Kamanche is a fretless instrument and may called the Persian spike fiddle, so the instrument has a spike at the bottom to rest on the ground or lap. (Description for parham nasseh poo - Thank you)

Good Morning Friends! Radiant day for everyone!

Equestrian Statuette of Gustavus II Adolphus of Sweden,
Daniel Lang, 1625-1635 - Crown Copyright - The Royal Collection. Image Courtesy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

King George III seemed to enjoy collecting things. He amassed a rather substantial collection of unusual and attractive artifacts during his lifetime. This equestrian statuette is a lovely example of King George’s love of fine art. Constructed of twenty-nine individual pieces of silver which have been chased, cut or wrought depending on the texture it’s trying to duplicate, this partially gilt sculpture was made in Augsburg between 1625 and 1635 by Daniel Lang and depicts Hapsburg leader Gustavus II Adolphus of Sweden.
What’s most intriguing about this piece is that the horse’s head is removable. Without its head, an interior cask serves as a drinking vessel, albeit an awkward one. Though no one’s drinking out of it these days, this sculpture is certainly an attractive piece of art and an interesting glimpse into the kinds of things that King George III liked to have around him.
