    No, I didn't know that song. Actually Turbofolk isn't my cup of tea, so let my comment be one more quote: "There are strings in the human heart that had better not be vibrated." (Ch. Dickens)

    Don't forget also a literature: “A woman's body is like a violin and all, and that it takes a terrific musician to play it right” (Catcher in the Rye, J.D.Saliger)

    This is a famous photograph Ingre’s Violin (1924) by Man Ray, inspired by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres's La Grande Baigneuse painting. Ray used Kiki de Montparnasse wearing a turban as a model for this piece. He transformed the female body into a musical instrument by painting sound-holes on her back, playing with the idea of objectification of an animate body. The unknown maker of this violin-girl was probably inspired by Ray’s photograph, but did just opposite – played with the idea of animation of an object – transforming violin body into a female. Man Ray (1890 – 1974) was American visual artist – painter, photographer, sculptor – aktive in Dada and Surrealist movements in Paris.

    Pain? I should rather say pleasure.
  5. 'Ascribed to Guarneri' at Tarisio

    Also, what about the possibility of a del gesu composite-a real back with a pin and the rest a clever copy, or perhaps a real del gesu except for a back that has been cleverly replaced. A single trait doesn't identify the whole. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The most likely the top is from 19th Century (dendro exam was probably done). The question is what is the back?

    Original Poster, yes. But I didn't meant that OP is genuine, but his violin. Here is one nice sketch by the versatile artist G. Bobbi...

    Giuseppe Carlo Bobbi (1891 – 1954) was Italian sculptor, violin maker and restorer, as could be seen on this link : G. Bobbi is second on the left About Bobbi on pages could be found this: BOBBI, Giuseppe Born 1891 Guatemala, died 1954 Milan Italy. Came to Milan to study sculpture in 1911. Active violin maker from 1938. Personal model with bright orange-red spirit varnish. 16 violins, two violas, and one cello completed. Bobbi Giuseppe fece / in Milano 1948... Think there is no need for doubts if the OP is genuine. Congratulations on acquiring violin made by such an interesting artist.
  8. Guns and violin making

    Excellent. A typical example of replacing the thesis. If that father didn't have a handgun in a house, the kid would probably play with a teddy bear, like kids in normal families do. I give up.
  9. Guns and violin making

    Agreed. But the violin in toddler's hand is less dangerous than pistol (except maybe for the violin).
  10. Guns and violin making

    so cute...
  11. Guns and violin making

    Absolutely. FEWER GUNS = FEWER KILLED. No debate over this.
  12. Guns and violin making

    Not the easiest way to do that.
  13. Guns and violin making

    And what will happen if he has a gun too? Gunfight at the O.K. Corral?
  14. Guns and violin making

    That is also very truth. Fortunately.
  15. Guns and violin making

    That is very true. Unfortunately
