black walnut lyre with bright flamewood carvings inlaid along the crossbar
Look: The lyre is stained a dark chocolate that highlights the darker brown grain curling along the surface of the wood. Intricately carved animals made from swirling red and gold wood portray an owl, a butterfly, a dolphin, a lion and a wolf. Their forms stand out against the dark wood of the crossbar supporting the instrument's four strings.

Recall

You search your mind for what you know of the walnut lyre...

The simply constructed lyre consists of a U-shaped body connected at the top with a slender crossbar. The four strings run from the crossbar to the bottom of the body across an open hand hole. It is played with one hand in front to strum the strings, and the other in the back to dampen the notes.
