Stone Harp (Orpheus and Eurydice)

René Küng1934- , Swiss

Stone Harp by Rene Kung

This musical instrument is similar to the other pieces by Küng that bear musical titles. Küng invites you to be attentive to the strings of the piece and "hear" the music of nature being played upon them. The alternate title of the work lends an interesting perspective on the myth of the harp-playing Orpheus who failed in leading his beloved Eurydice out of the Underworld.

Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.

Located in the Harrison Sculpture Garden.
