Building a Troubadour Harpsicord

Dutch Boxwood Bead Boxes. On my first visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York I saw, among the monumental and famous pieces, a small item that captured my eye.

Dutch Boxwood Bead Boxes

It was so impressive that I even decided to buy a postcard with a picture of it. This was a spherical shaped miniature wooden box that, once opened, displayed an intricate biblical scene that shocked me with its complexity and level of detailed carving work. Now, after 500 years of speculation as to how these boxes were constructed, a joint venture with the Met and the Art Gallery of Ontario have uncovered what the skilled Dutch carvers so elegantly were able to keep hidden.
