I made scroll of Each Violins I crafted hundreds of years ago not the one shown in claimed Stradivari Violins of Today

When I crafted my violins hundreds of years ago the scroll do not look like the one shown in internet publications. The Violin scroll I crafted with my strict Luthier hands is the male and female representation of disciplined,well bred, God-loving Man and woman of good Democratic Nations. - Reincarnated Antonio Stradivari trough JesusChrist in cruzgomezhowellreynaldodela
