Viola da gamba 7 strings Colichon model 2018 production

 “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.”
