For people who don't know or understand. Why does a Stradivari violin sell for $3.6 million dollars? Why would a little cluster of wooden parts be so grossly valuable? A musical instrument is not just a visual work of art. It is not just an audible work of art. It also has to play with ease while being durable enough to withstand the demanding hands of the energetic player and last many years after it's maker. In this case almost 300 years after the maker's death! (Instruments have survived wars, abuse, neglect, and not to mention years of music singing from its magical box) Professionals who play this instruments will tell you that a factory made, or lesser grade instrument will not produce satisfactory results enough to perform on. If you are a race car driver, you cannot bring a KIA to the race track, you bring the Ferrari. To the trained hands, these instruments are God. $3.6 million is a drop in the bucket for such splendor. This is why I sacrificed so much to make musical instruments, and why I consider musical instruments to be the highest of all arts. Of course I also wanted to be a little closer to God.
