Anatomy of a Cello ~ Bouts and Waist

"The cello is shaped with bouts and a waist to maximize sound production and make room for the bow."
This image won out over the others that I took because of how the "purfling" (decorative edge) caught the light in the c-shaped bout.

Every once in a while a photo's features stand out better when viewed on black. This may be one of those times.
Ohhh, stunning! The purfing adds the perfect touch!

This is fascinating - now would like to see one in reality. Don't guess I've ever studied one.

Wonderful use of positive and negative space and black and white.
