carved skull violin, memento mori, Violin shaped object
This is a custom carved and painted violin. This is NOT a functional violin, it is a piece of art. It is made to order. The one in the photos was donated to raise money to buy violins for a music program. I had so much feedback and so many requests, that I decided to make it again, to order. It will be very similar, but every carving is unique. In addition to Skulls, Ii can do most any theme. Price will vary by design.
This skull violin takes almost 40 hours to create.
Due to the custom nature, there is no return for this item.
This is carved into the body of the violin, nothing is applied. the only thing added is the skulls on the tuning pegs.
Carving into the body of the violin will change the acoustics. Also, the fingerboard is carved and would not allow proper fingering. This piece is meant for ornamental purposes only. It is NOT a functional violin for playing.
Stand is available as well but not included
