“This work was inspired by my observation that a busy modern life style often leaves our traditions and heritage behind. In this painting I focused on the bowl back mandolin, a musical instrument, developed in Italy, used to play traditional folk music such as Tarantella. Not many people know how to play it anymore, but a canary still remembers the melody and sings for us. The picture contains my hope that traditions are never lost. Even if one person forgets, someone else will remember it, and the tradition will continue.” - Miki K. T. Chart
