The Musée national du Moyen Âge, better known as the Cluny Museum, is best known as the home of The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. The museum’s statues, art, stained glass, and tapestries provide windows into the lives of the people who were alive when the Gothic cathedrals of Paris were being built, and show that music was an important part of life in the Middle Ages. There are a couple of harp sightings, too! Come have a look:

I love those tapestries! I must go see them in person one day! 🙂
They are so amazing. The size, the detail, the subject matter all make for total wonder when you see them in person. I hope you can see them soon!
I’d love to play so that a halo appeared around my head. Too often, my playing sounds as if I had hooves rather than fingers… Love all these harp sightings. Bet you are missing yours!
Wouldn’t we all love that halo! But you don’t give yourself credit for how lovely you sound on your harp. Yes, I am missing mine. This is the longest I’ve been without fingers on harp since I started playing. I am trying to do some mental practice so I can remember the tunes I am memorizing, but it’s not the same. But France almost makes up for harp withdrawal.
