Has anyone seen a violin like this before? Do you reckon that it's a 'playable' instrument? How would you get the sound post in and out?

I can't tell by the picture, is that scroll work or ink work?  Beautiful as wall art either way.

A steampunk fiddle!  Awesome!

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
