Beautiful does not mean appealing,
and appealing does not necessarily mean beautiful.
Beautiful can in fact be ugly,
and ugly can turn out to be beautiful.
Specially in Baroque.
Where the contrast is everything.
Even if grotesque, even Baroque.
Yes or no?
I guess, it just must have some life in it.
Time to give it a face.
And what I noticed, though some msucians say, "I don't care what it looks like" at the end of the day, everyone prefers to be both visually and acoustically appealing.
And the instrument is just a part of it.
Even a vehicle.
