Artist's description:

A violin-like instrument in pure palladium with the strings and the inlay in fine gold and a buttefly-like pair of ears on the back is snugly rivetted upon a bell in 800 silver chased with chased patterns, which may resemble dancing violins, but are also inspired by my journeys to Papua New Guinea. The bell's hammer is made of a hammered tongue of sterling silver and 800 platinum-iridium alloy workhardened for the construction and so is quite free of any wear for hundreds of years; the bell's tongue itself is always easily renewable. Light, long and full sound with bright overtones. Only the bell is rhodium plated.
Signed and hallmarked inside the bell.
