I made two additional sacred nature instruments for the Urhu character to have inside the tent. This one connects the music he plays to the idea of things growing more overtly, with its neck being made of living vines with buds of blossoms emerging on it. I love the intricate way the strings interwove themselves. The strings turn to gold when the music is played (upper right). The bow for this one has a double arch to it. I don't plan to animate these props but in my mind's eye, I can see the mysterious way it is played.
A couple weeks back, Sherie came over for an hour between obligations. Just enough time to construct the curly twig bow for Urhu's primary sacred Erhu Lute (kindly modeled on the right by my very own precious wise man.)
