(Best viewed enlarged)During my stay (reading the description from my 1st entry on this topic) I noticed that when doing detailed work the craftsman uses the off hand finger to steady his working hand. He later used a micrometer to measure the exact depth of his chiseling. The hard wood of the dolcimer is later stained to the customer's specs. Some of these sell in the $500 range.

Superb isolation of the subject with the wide aperture and excellent tonality too.
I've never seen a dulcimer so I had Google this strange instrument which sounds similar but is much different in looks to the European Zither.
Excellent.

I find your closeup view of the hands draws me into this image... the dexterity and capability of the human hand is strongly brought into play by the craftsman working on the dulcimer.

Great detail shot, works well in black and white.
These instruments turn up on lots of recordings but dont get the recognition they should. I have made a few of the stick type dulcimers and can appreciate the care thats needed in this craft work. Great shot. Thanks
