The World's Greatest Music
Beares has put 47 string instruments up for auction, (the first of its kind to have an eBay-style 'buy now' function) and we're wishing we had a spare $3.5m. Bidding closes on 28 October.
Are violins undervalued in comparison to works of art? Simon Morris says: "If you look at it, relatively obscure painters go for way more than a Strad, but everybody knows that Strad is recognised universally: a taxi driver in Sydney knows. String instruments have become really iconic works of art, recognised by everybody. You almost think, why isn't it worth more?" Photo: Benjamin Ealovega
