Garden of the Sea
Discover the hidden details on this beautifully intricate, hand painted violin. During the day, this gorgeous instrument features a serene koi pond in a floral garden. At night, or with blacklight, it transforms into the deep sea. Within the current, discover an octopus, eagle ray and sea turtles chasing after jellyfish. Moving towards the back, the sides have flowing currents of gingko leaves. During the day, the back of this violin features an elegant literati (Bunjin) bonsai at twilight. At night the stars glimmer in the sky. A visual representation of the emotional complexity that one can feel from listening to music, what song is she singing to you?
