This is a theme I've been obsessed with for a very, very long while-I think that one can find 4 or 5 versions of the Storyteller in my 'album' of works but I especially like this one because each time I see it, the song that has inspired it to me comes to my head...

Whenever he is playing, the inverted position of the Storyteller's hands on his cello together with the shape of the holes in the instrument create a song resonating with the sounds of Fantaseea. Thus, the Bridge is revealed and the Gate to the magic lands is open.

:-) Irina Stefan replies: "thank you! I like that instrument too-fact is that the song that put this pic into my head is a cello based one...which i am very fond of..."
