With the global lockdowns coming to an end, the world starts to work in the flow that it used to. Music and all other forms of art took a heavy hit during the pandemic and now, it rises up from the ash to flourish as it before. To commemorate this very paramount time in human history, Venice, a hub for the world’s most beautiful artwork created something spectacular!
The skillful Venician artist Livio de Marchi took on the challenge to create a piece of art for this event. He is a master of the woodwork and that is how he presented his creation. This artist created a beautiful violin out of wood, but it is not an ordinary violin. It is 40 feet long and 13 feet wide, a giant violin which is named “Noah’s Violin”. This was created, polished, and prepared just like a regular violin, but that was not all. This violin was mounted by musicians who played as it was sent floating in the grand canal in Venice, a fitting act for its name. Scroll down to check out photos of this awesome project that was done to celebrate the rebirth of art.
This project was done with the support of other artists and technicians as well. They helped Livio to make sure that this violin was exactly designed as an original. It was a very gracious and classy sight to see as this giant violin; AKA “Noah’s Violin”, floated down the grand canal gracefully as the musicians played “Vivaldi” on it.
It is both equally important to celebrate the global revival of arts and also the fact that the world is getting back into the way that it was before this recent pandemic broke out.
