The Keys to Wolf Rock

Sixteen brass keys hang from a piece of cord. Each blade is in the image of a ziggurat. They belonged to the last keeper of Wolf Rock Lighthouse. (I have them on loan from my neighbour). The lighthouse is built upon a lone rock eight miles from Lands End, and twenty miles from the Isle of Scilly. When the wind blows through the clefts and fractures in the rock it comes to life like a huge stone harmonica and sounds like the cry of a wolf - hence the name.
