Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • flutes - Generally refers to any musical wind instrument consisting of a hollow cylinder or pipe of wood, metal, or another material, with holes along its length that are stopped by the fingers or by keys that are opened by the fingers. Although most flutes are tubular, some are globular (as with a gourd flute). A flute is sounded by a stream of air from the player's lips striking against the sharp edge of an opening, breaking the air up and vibrating within the enclosed space. The air may be blown in from an end or from the side, depending upon the type of flute. Many, but not all, modern flutes are equipped with the Boehm system of keywork.
  • Korean - Culture and style of peoples from the East Asian peninsula of Korea.
  • music - The discipline of combining vocal or instrumental sounds to produce beauty of form, harmony, melody, rhythm, expressive content, etc.; musical composition, performance, analysis, etc., as a subject of study; the occupation or profession of musicians.
  • paintings - Unique works in which images are formed primarily by the direct application of pigments suspended in oil, water, egg yolk, molten wax, or other liquid, arranged in masses of color, onto a generally two-dimensional surface.
  • scroll paintings - Refers to paintings having a long, narrow scroll format. Term is often used in the context of Chinese and Japanese paintings on either hanging scrolls (kakemono, if Japanese) or on handscrolls (emakimono, if Japanese). For written documents on long, rolled strips, see "scrolls (information artifacts)."
  • trees - Woody, perennial plants usually with a single, long, self-supporting stem or trunk, and which grow to a considerable height.
