Blackbird

The Blackbird is a violin made of stone (Diabase), a \"leftover\" Gravestone of Lars his Grandfather. The violin was constructed to the designs of Stradivarius.

The belly of the violin is only 2.5 mm thick at its thinnest point. The ribs were made in one piece by first sawing out a 30 mm thick plate shaped to form the external contour, and then, with infinite care, removing the inside using water-drill and hand-tools so as to create a thin rib, no more than a couple of millimetres thick at its thinnest point.
