Balalaika by Nader G. Vakili


Honduran mahogany screwed to plexiglass; plastic strings
56"H x 18"W x ~7"D

Conveys a sense of happiness: the player enjoying himself. Composed of eight pieces: the balalaika body; a strumming hand made of two pieces; three frets and one fiddlehead; and a flaming arc, the flame of enchantment.
