Description : This handcrafted four-stringed violon has a golden brown belly and back with a lighter, ivory coloured (possibly ebony) fingerboard, bridge, and four pegs. There are two f-holes (sound-holes), a first string tuner, a black tailpiece and saddle, and a scroll similar in colour to the belly of the instrument. The chin rest is also the same colour as the violin's belly and is situated just below the tailpiece.
Commentaires : In his lifetime, Jim Odo fabricated and sold over 200 violins. Most of his violins were purchased from Ontario buyers. He was originally from Cheticamp but lived in New Waterford. He was born October 19th, 1885 and died in the early 1970's. This unfinished exhibit, his second last, is a cherished souvenir and perhaps his 215th violin. It was bought for $20.00 in the summer of 1969 by Fr. Charles Aucoin. It recalls the memory of a native son who, like so many others, had to emigrate to New Waterford. The origin of the violin can be traced to the 9th century, however, " it emerged in its definitive form between 1520 and 1550 in northern Italy." Violins were usually manufactured by hand from wood and consisted of the bow (stick and bowhair) and the violin body - which includes the scroll, neck, pegs and pegbox, belly, ribs, sound holes, fingerboard, purfles, bridge, bass bar, chin rest, saddle, and sound post. Wood generally used in the manufacture of a violin include spruce, maple, ebony, and rosewood, however this would depend on the person crafting the violin and the resources they have at their disposal.
