I think I have seen more bad ones than good ones.  On the other hand if you liked this violin it seems like it is at lower end of his price range.  It might be a bargain and you could just make a little lone ranger mask for it, or a blindfold, or COVID-19 mask, or....... (I'm having a lot of fun with the many opportunities available here :-)

Somebody at Tarisio must have seen your post.  This photo appeared in the pics for this violin.  :lol:

The violin sold for $9000 ($10,800 with premium).

I have a friend with a Pollman bass with a lion’s head, and I’ve always thought it looked great.

I’m pretty sure that Anne Cole has had fun with scrolls in her time, too.

As I was reading this post I wondered about non-traditional scrolls that WOULD meet with widespread approval. Couldn’t think of any.
maybe a dodecahedron?

All round amazing, the satyr couple on the back forms the "hook". The male has a hook of his own.

 

That's just absurd. Can you imagine the time it would take to design and carve that? I grew up around someone who worked at that level, and I'd guess that's a solid month of dedicated work.

It's a pity that they're so rare as to be uncollectable.

13th/14th century English citole (formerly classed as a gittern) remodelled as a violin (British museum).
