My New Instrument - a Sgra-Snyan from Tibet

It has seen better days, but I'm happy to give it a new home.

Taken from the internet.
Commonly known as a Horse Head lute, it comes from Nepal or Tibet. It is a Sgra-Snyan or Dranyen, and was introduced into Tibet during the Tang Dynasty, circa 700. I think its lovely.
