A Lyre Made Out Of A Human Skull

The lyre is a distant relative of the modern day guitar, yet it’s not really considered the type of instrument a heavy metal band would want to play onstage, but maybe this morbid instrument will change their mind.

This is a lyre made from a human skull, as well as antelope horns, guts, skin and hair, and it’s probably the most metal instrument I’ve ever seen!

It dates back to the 19th century, and is currently part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection, at least until some extremely wealthy rock god snatches it up for their own wicked purposes...
