Add beauty and history to your home with this beautiful King David's Door Harp! Consisting of a hollow wooden sound box, and strung tuned metal strings, this door harp attaches to the front door, and creates a gentle, harmonious sound when the door opens or closes.
My first encounter with a door harp was about 40 years ago, when I went to consult with a client in the Old City of Jerusalem, and heard delightful, gentle chimes as I entered their home.
Attached to the inside of the front door, I saw a beautiful door harp for the first time. I was mesmerized by this simple, ingenious little instrument, and began further research on it.
It seems that the door harp originated about 700 years ago, in Scandinavia (Sweden and Finland), as a result of encounters with the Chinese. There appears to be a connection between the Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui (which uses chimes, hung around windows and doors, to move bad energy out, and good energy in) and the Scandinavian door harp, whose gentle chimes welcome guests into one’s home and bring good luck and good vibes.
As well as using them in homes, they can be used in shops, offices or clinics to announce the arrival of clients. They also make perfect gifts for weddings, housewarmings, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, or any special occasion!
