Rosette (music)

A rosette (from French, meaning little rose), rose, or knot,[1] in the context of musical instruments, is a form of soundhole decoration. The name originated during the medieval period, as a comparison with church windows which were called rose windows. On the oud they are called by the Arabic language term shams, meaning sun.
