My grandfather's violin

The subject of this photograph is my grandfather's violin,
one of my most precious and oldest possessions
that I hold very close to my heart.

This violin was handmade by my grandfather's 
older brother Jan Visser, who was an architect,
but had a passion for building violins.

It comes in the original crocodile-skin case.

My grandfather must have loved this instrument!
