Growing Guitar by Jay Harel

Growing Guitar

The artwork in the picture was a joint project with my daughter, 5 years in the making. The colors around the body encode the song While my Guitar Gently Weeps by the Beatles’ George Harrison. A few other hints are strewn throughout the design.

– Manzanita branch stained to restore the original color.
– Artificial twigs and leaves made to look like the original tree.
– A used wooden body of an electric guitar.
– Steel-rod strings.
– Hand-sawn strap.
