“I call this viola I made, “Ethiopia” because the sculpture of the head I made reminds me that place. 7 strings Viol, French model, Colichon, adapted for a diapason of 69.5.
The sculpture of the head suggested this nickname to catalog it among my instruments. The subject is pure fantasy, as is the hairstyle.”
