The Turtle and the Violin


Recommended Posts

An Andrew Carruthers creation:

I found this fascinating!


1. I have a tortoise (all tortoises are turtles, not all turtles are tortoises) :heart:

...although turtle scutes are convex, not concave...just sayin'...

2. A different take on a finished surface, definitely not smooth!

3. The deliberate varnishing to create the "turtle shell" effect, that looks like the old, rough varnish found on many antique instruments.

These look more like Aliens...........  https://www.andrewcarruthers.com/cellular-fiddles-part-3-finished-and-compared/

Maybe even Lovecraft.  Those things could give my dogs the willies, possibly even upset the gators.  :lol:

I feel that he's a genius, but so was Frankenstein... :ph34r:

I'd love one of these to add to my collection of odd violins, but couldn't justify the expense of something like this.  :)

That is very curious, although the end product looks more Lord of the Rings than A tortoise.

If Sauron made violins!

Naw.  Cthulhu.  :lol:

Y'know, it really says something about this forum, that it has "Cthulhu" in the spell-check.  :huh:
