Musical scultpures: instruments from Africa, Asia, Oceania and America
The catalogue picks up the selection of 130 musical instruments from the Foundation La Fontana that take part of the temporary exhibition at the Museu de la Música (September 2013- April 2014). They are an exceptional sample of the international relevance of this collection created by Helena Folch-Rusiñol and Alejandro Maluquer. They reach mainly the geographical areas of Africa, Asia and Oceania, with some distinguished examples of America as well. The pictures of each one of the pieces stand out the beauty and artistic quality of these sculptures and the texts reflect the forms and uses of these instruments in ceremonial and profane contexts.
