Handmade Ten String acoustic guitar: Rosette detail
Rosette

The rosette reflects a fusion of European and Arabic classical cultures. Historically the classical guitar is the granddaughter of the Arabian Oude brought to Spain by the Moors, and the European Lute. So we wanted an aesthetic that would reflect this. Once again the rosette proved to be the perfect canvas. If you spend a moment, you may discern minarets, stained glass, rose crosses and sickle moons, all elements found in Mosques and Churches from medieval Spain.
Materials used:
Ebony, Flame maple and black pearl.
