Senegal - Griot playing a Kora Featured Print

Senegal - Griot playing a Kora

Senegal - seated Griot playing a Kora, a 21-stringed harp lute that originated in the Gambia River valley with the Mandinko but is one of the most popular instruments in Senegal. Griots from most Mande groups in Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau play the kora, which has featured on a number of western recordings in recent years. A Griot is a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and/or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition, and is also often seen as something of a societal leader due to his traditional position as an adviser to royal personages. Date: circa 1910s

Newton's cradle, artwork Featured Print

Newton's cradle, artwork

Newton's cradle, artwork. This device consists of a number of steel balls suspended from a frame (not seen) in a horizontal line. Here, one ball on the end (left) has been pulled back and allowed to swing forward and downward under gravity. When it impacts the stationary line of balls, its momentum is transferred along the line, causing the ball on the opposite end to move upwards to a similar height. This sequence of impacts continues until all the initial energy has been lost to friction and sound. This apparatus, often used as a desk toy, demonstrates the conservation of momentum and energy.
