This is a scene from Cuba with musical instruments. There is a large floor resting on two blocks curved to fit the contours of the bottle. On this floor is a very large six string guitar with the strings made from metal. It rests on a custom stand in the shape of the guitar. Behind the guitar is a cactus plant carved from wood. Next to the guitar and in the center of the bottle are bongo drums with a colorful maraca on each side. Behind these instruments is a large spoke wheel with a large knife shaped plaque on the top with the word "Cuba" on it in black letters. Toward the opening of the bottle is a large chair with a black seat and back. Under the floor the follow is carved in the planks: "Puky Omaja" and "Tunas Cuba." Puky is the nickname of the artist and he used to be a musician and these are some of his memories. The bottle is sealed with a decorative turned wooden stopper. The bottle rests on a custom carved wooden stand.
