I just finished Lurch's organ. I put quite a bit of work and detail into to it just for the fact that it will be a big part of the main living area. The Addamses LOVE music and always have some romantic tune in the background. While the tv showed a harpsichord, I decided to go with the dark and dreary organ... plus I love the double layering of the keys on organs.
There are a few details to note.... the back of the organ has the Addams Family crest. I took it from the first movie when they showed it on one of the graves. They're credo is "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us". Not sure if you can see but the crest contains three heads (all of a lioness I think) where the first head is angry, the next has a foot sticking out of its mouth and the last is smiling with its tongue out!! So funny, I was laughing when I finally put the credo and the crest together in my head..... I love set designers.... such a sense of humor.
Parts of the organ (as you might see) have bits broken off... I wanted to make sure it looked well used. And on the back there looks as though something might have chewed through the organ back and be living in there??
Lastly, the keys are all individual and move up and down like a real organ. They do get stuck occasionally however... which I thinks adds to the charm of an old organ. I sanded each key seperatly to give it that well worn look.
I think it'll be a great focal peice for the living room.... ahhhh.... now I have to build the living room!!!!
