Ginacue on Cuezilla this week

Named “Atlantis,” Ernie Gutierrez made this ebony and ivory Ginacue for the Greco Roman Collection, currently housed in the Max Hoskins' collection. 

As the collection name implies, the set speaks to the classical themes and artwork of Greece and Rome. Gutierrez used ivory to form the columns with fine silverwork to give the fluted look. The design for the capitals and bases of the columns are inspired from Roman architecture. For the tiny columns inside the larger ones, Ernie used cross cut ivory which has grain to it. The cue has over 100 pieces smaller than a grain of rice. Other finishing touches include an ivory butt cap and a fine leather wrap.
