So I was just looking around on etsy, and I was like, hey let's look up ukulele!
So I did, and one of the few first entries found:

It's absolutely adorable! 8)

I live near Asheville NC where this artist works. There are some other examples at http://www.etsy.com/shop/celentanowoodworks?ref=top_trail I especially like the snail.

Are those actually ukes meant to be played? Or leaning more to the display, "art" piece? They just seem to be built more for the artistic appeal of them more than as a playable quality instrument. Just wondering..

That said, they are cute none the less..

I think they're finely crafted instruments to be played.
No different from custom luthier made ukes, except they're crafted in more interesting shapes compared to the usual.

At least from the videos, they sound great;
