Symbols - What does heaven look like

Musical instrument

The symbolism of all musical instruments is multi-faceted.

Many stringed instruments are strung to look like the templates of a human being.  Some look like the web. Some look like the loom.  What specifically they look like is perhaps of less importance than the fact they represent a symbolic aspect of the spiritual landscape.

There is also the connection with the songlines.

Furthermore the meridians in particular look like the strings of an instrument – all of these are of course inter related there is no contradiction by using the musical instrument as a symbol of all these.

Furthermore music itself and musical instruments are capable of producing spiritual experience – see Listening to Sound and music and Singing and humming.
