Artwork Focus: Saung | Intersection Yangon (2018)

Suspended in mid-air, three delicate paper sculptures strike an ethereal image with intricate shadows cast on the wall behind. Boat-like in shape, with strings attached from the body to the elegantly curved neck, Humming History, Paper Notes, and Arpeggio by artist Nicola Anthony take as their inspiration the traditional court instrument of Burma (as Myanmar was known in ancient times): the saung, a harp carved from the root of a tree and strung with silk.
