Ascending Song

Music, that is to say "resonant frequencies", rise up towards the planets from the belly of the lute, representing the Earth. The "planets" in this case are the 5 dwarf planets within the Kuiper Belt  (from left to right) Eris, Makemake, Haumea, Pluto and Ceres.

Acid etched copper, fretwork, ink oxides, amber Vitrea, shellac. Stainless steel reflective metal backing fretwork, backed in white fir and raw sawn red fir.
