I've got the world on a string

Whoever would have thought of making art with string? Quite a few people, actually.

Unless a kitten is in close proximity, string is surely less messy than paint. It's easier on the budget, too. Some examples follow. Let's unroll!

Everystring's coming up roses.

State of the art.

For those of you too young to remember audio cassettes,
they looked like this. It contains a recording of the
Incredible String Band.

A string quartet playing an arrangement of
Respighi's The Birds.

Members of the animal stringdom.

What's that? You've had enough? You won't stand for any more of these ridiculous puns?

All right. Here, have a seat.
