The main shaft is made of cedar, a remnant of the piano sacrificed during Moe Staiano’s Moe!kestra improvised orchestral performance of “Death of a Piano”. The handle grip is made from thick rose cane hollowed to take the shaft, which is wrapped in alternating layers of iron and copper wire. The wasp on the carved section of mammoth ivory is inlaid with Siberian jet.
