  Chen used a 0.1-milimeter drill point to shape a piece of maple the size of a thumbnail, and finally joined all the components together with glue.

   "Anyhow, the strings of the world's Smallest violin are so thin and it is not easy to play sound music." Chen admitted.

  Photo:"Compared with the common violins of 35.5-centimeter-long bodies, these mini violins, called ant's violins, are so small, but they consist of all the over thirty components of common violins," Chen told the Guangzhou Daily.
