The Butterfly Harp, YangQin/Yeurng Kum, (aka Hammered Dulcimer) of which
mine is shaped of that of a trapazoid also has traditional roots from
the Middle East. It arrived in China during the Ming Dynasty and was
redesigned to accomodate the pentatonic scale.
The Maoris of New Zealand believe their ancestry came from the Grand
Canyon of Arizona, USA. There is a striking resemblence of ancient art
patterns found in both traditional Maoris & the ancient art of Native
American of Arizona. There is also a striking resemblence of ancient
Shang Dynasty art patterns & motifs & writings with that of the ancient
Olmec culture of Meso-America in present day Mexico.
