Harpsichord, 1652
Claude Jacquet
French, active in the 1600s
carved, painted, and gilded wood

This instrument is a rare surviving example of a seventeenth-century French harpichord.
The open lid reveals a scene of the god Apollo pursuing the nymph Daphne.
Daphne prayed for rescue and was turned into a laurel tree as Apollo touched her.
When the harpsichord was made, Louis XIV was king of France.
Louis used the sun as his emblem, and the sun is associated with Apollo, a god of Peace and the arts.

Here you can listen to the sound of the Harpsichord…

Australian Pelican

Pelecanus conspicillatus

The Australian Pelican is often seen around the coasts, where it can be seen roosting on sandbanks, rock platforms and reefs, or swimming in lagoons, bays and estuarine waters, dipping their oversized bills into the water to catch fish. However, on the rare occasions that monsoonal rains flood the salt lakes in the arid inland of Australia, many pelicans take advantage of the conditions and flock there in their thousands to breed. When it dries out, they leave and head for other less-ephemeral terrestrial wetlands or the coast.

I took this photo in the Wetlands in Mannum, South Australia
I also asked them friendly to all look my way.........

My name is Petra and I live in South Australia
