dc.description.abstract "The single bamboo pictured in Derua tied on man to one note. There is here what, eye, appears to be a giant panpipe, bunched bamboos trimmed and tuned to unequal lengths giving at each pounding a complex chord. The musician's armlets, each a wheel of color with and the arm at its axle, are in this print highly stylized. They would be made of tufts of leaves of autumnal color that emphasize each motion of the performer, whose expert manipulation of the bulky bamboo pipes become for the ear music and for the eye, a dance."
