9 note single board kalimba The kalimba is a very representative national instrument of Africa. It can also be called the thumb piano, because it is played by using the thumbs of the left and right hands to create melodies. This simple instrument creates a unique ethereal sound that is both relaxing and inspiring. **This design was exhibited at Nie Lou Cafe and Looking Glass Silver.** Name of the work: Octopus lover Representative animal: Octopus Materials: Maple wood, natural stones There are always people around who love you, but not everyone can be there all the time. At a very low point in my life, I met a guy who supported and encouraged me, and since then he has stayed by my side and helped me all the way to today. He is from Northern Ireland and he told me that his favorite animal is the octopus. I asked why and he said that the octopus is a very clever animal and humans can still not find the root of their evolution on earth. In fact, there are even some people who say that they are aliens . He also often said that he felt that he was an octopus in his previous life, because he liked the feeling of freedom when swimming in the sea, and he also liked to take time alone. Just like an octopus can use a cave, a discarded coconut shell or even a bottle to hide in, he also likes to find his own little private space. Octopus are also very good at solving problems and my partner often reminds me that there are no unsolvable problems in the world, as long as we think together we can find the answer. It's true that the positive energy he brings makes me happy and keeps me growing, and this man has now become my husband. He is a constant source of inspiration and joy in my life.
