The Flower of Sunrise

A Baroque Laouto-bouzouko!

As I am waiting to post a very interesting article by a famous master Luther, and inspired by the Baroque era of 17th century , I left my imagination free to design a heavily decorated, long scale ( 72 cm )  Laouto-bouzouko. 

Its name inspired by the rosette flower theme "The Flower of Sunrise"

The materials been used are :

Bone , white natural sea shell , abalone, maple wood and rosewood. The sound hole rosette has been designed in two different altitudinal levels following the technique in Baroque guitar rosettes. 

Rosewood and maple for the peripheral filet
