This is a shoe stand. Now, it is a 'keeper of tradition'.
I've been working in studio on an instrument, which will hold the sounds of a headdress. The sound portion of my project will be displayed mostly in the library and media rooms at the National Czech & Slovak Museum; interacting with the archive and preserving new source material for future generations. Some of these source materials include collecting the Czech dialect in Iowa - if you know someone, who still speaks Czech please contact me. I feel it is important to capture the current state of the language, which is unique - often, it is an old form of the present-day language.
