the hidden music

A Denver woodworker has created an elaborate desk whose music can only be released by those able to solve the puzzles embedded in it.

The desk, crafted from ebony, Bastogne walnut and pink ivory, has eight square drawers that act like bellows on a pipe organ. When a drawer is pushed in, it emits a tone. Play the right tune of 12 notes, and a secret drawer is unlocked.

Secrets within secrets. Music within music. Essence within essence.

And all for the price of a luxury car.

I wish spiritual endeavor were that cheap.
