Why are harps harp shaped

Very interesting article by Jon Butterworth in The Guardian and fascinating to read about it from a physics point of view.

Also in the article are links to a research paper by Chris Waltham on harp design and construction.

For the less scientifically minded the images of the harp soundwaves are fascinating.
