“Strad Poster”

November 21, 2010

Yay! My Strad poster finally made it.  As you can see, my kitty is excited too.  (He wanted to walk on it…  naturally.)

Anyways, this particular poster is of a violin known as “Titian” which was made by Stradiveri in 1715.  The front side of the poster shows photographs of the violin from different views. As well as a CT scan of the top. (Yes, the same kind of CT scan that a doctor uses. Technology comes in very handy for many reasons!)

The back shows the measurement details (lengths, distances, thicknesses, etc.) And more CT scans for additional thickness and arching detail. It also shows a thickness map of the front and pack plates, derived from the CT scans.

Being new to this, I’m not quite sure, but I think a lot of the stuff is meant to be to scale (although clearly not all of it). I don’t have time right now, but I’m sure I’ll analize it more, later.
