Four-string aficionado Marco Menin, however, recently went to the extreme, taking his creativity off the fretboard and into the workshop to build a giant, fully playable human totem bass sculpture.

Measuring in at a whopping 13 feet tall, the aptly named Bass Giant is adorned by 16 individual models, and comes equipped with a variety of appointments that push the limits of contemporary art.
