9 note single board kalimba The kalimba is a very representative national instrument of Africa. It can also be called the thumb piano, because it is played by using the thumbs of the left and right hands to create melodies. This simple instrument creates a unique ethereal sound that is both relaxing and inspiring. **This design was exhibited at Nie Lou Cafe and Looking Glass Silver.** Name of the work: My Biggest Fear Representative animal: Cockroach Materials: Maple wood, natural stones I don't know when I started to fear them, but they have become what I fear the most. There are many ways to remove cockroaches, such as poisons, traps, tools, etc., I have all of these in my home, just for my own protection! I probably kill hundreds of them each year. But if you think about it, in fact, it is also a living creature. They only come to your home to see if there is any food, or if there is a place to live. Still, we humans have this unexplained fear. We have to kill them. Having said that, I still can't reduce my fear and if I’m going to live in this country I will have to face the situation again and again. Now I am confronting it every day, I want to drive away what I fear the most, and the cockroach has for me become one of the most representative animals of fear.
