Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • bagpipes - Composite reedpipes consisting of an air-tight skin, cloth, or rubber bag which serves as the air reservoir, one or more chanters with fingerholes on which the melody is played, and often one or more drone pipes which sound a continuous background to the melody. All sounding pipes have reeds and are attached to the bag by being inserted into tubular wooden stocks which are tied into openings in the bag.
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • genre
  • German - Refers to the cultures, periods, and styles of the modern nation of Germany, or the cultures that have occupied the area of the modern nation in central Europe. More broadly, it can refer to the cultures of the ancient groups of related peoples who inhabited central and northern Europe, and who spoke dialects from which the Germanic or Teutonic languages developed.
