“Viola da gamba 7 strings French model, Bertrand, which I was able to study up close. Vibrating string 69.
The carved head of this instrument is of my imagination and was sketched during a sculpture course under the guidance of the Dutch luthier and sculptor, Gesina Liedmeier.
I called it “viola with Pampini” inspired by the crown of leaves and grapes that I put on the head of the Bacchante.“
