No, not my viola but maybe I´ll make one for her in the future.

In any case, the eventual criticism might not be related to the viola itself, but in artistic choices.

On another matter, do you have instruments being played here in Portugal?

I'm quite curios to see, and hear one of yours live. Your photos are always absolutely beautiful, so I can only image how can the actual instruments beat that. And I'm sure they do!

Sorry Christian, 'cut down' is the wrong wording... 'altered slightly' is a better description. John Dilworth in the strad article on Isserelis's Montagnana (June 2005) mentioned the middle bout seems to be original and unaltered but the upper and lower bout edges have been moved inwards slightly along with the purfling. 

I looked at the poster again and the outline and indeed the whole instrument looks quite attractive. I like the over all size
