Seeing Tangles Everywhere

We missed celebrating Father’s Day on the actual day because we were in Providence at the CZT30 Seminar. So we celebrated yesterday. One of the things we did was to go to the Musical Instrument Museum. It is one of our favorite places to go because you learn about geography, history, music, and art all rolled into one.

While my husband was walking around looking at the instruments, I spent a lot of time taking pictures of things that resembled tangles. I deliberately tried to find ones that were simple, although I also took lots of pictures of more complex art.

If you have joined me on my Facebook art page, you can continue this discussion with me. We’re going to list what tangles these designs remind us of there!

This is a short description of where I found each design:

  1. This grid pattern is the bead netting overlay on a gourd rattle.
  2. The upholstery pattern on the seating in the lobby area.
  3. Closeup of the texture on a washboard instrument.
  4. Design on the side of a Chinese drum from the Olympics.
  5. Found on the front of a large self-playing instrument.
  6. The top of a steel drum.
  7. Design on an animal horn.
  8. Top of a wheel fiddle.
