Harp As Hood Ornament

You just never know where you're going to spot a harp. This morning I took a long run (11 miles!) along the Santa Barbara waterfront, past the weekly Sunday Arts and Crafts Fair near the pier. There was a van in the parking lot that was a work of art all by itself. It had an amazing array of things glued to every surface but what caught my eye was the small harp prominently affixed to the top of the car.

The harp was surrounded by several Star Trek characters, even the Starship Enterprise, and the android Data was plucking the strings. Finally, an appropriate use for one of those "hand-carved rosewood" harps from Pakistan - better known as "harp-shaped objects."
