A Chanukah menorah.

Named as such for its beauty, compared to viola instrument music.
The lights of the viola are beautiful

an amazing 4 string instrument that is larger in size and personality then a violin. It sounds more like a cello, only an octive lower. The strings are(from lowest to highest)C-G-D-A. Viola players are usually the most underappreciated of the entire orchestra. They generally get sucky parts and little attention. The instrument itself is beautiful if played correctly.
The entire viola section was appaled at the discustingly simple parts they were issued to play while the violins had 100% of the melody and it was even challenging.

Larger than the violin but smaller than the cello. It sounds sort of chocolaty, but playing it is difficult because it's range is fit in an instrument like 30 % too small. Like the 2nd best instrument in the orchestra, behind cello. Often underappreciated, but it's really one of the best instruments out there. Violists themselves are quite eccentric- a big bundle of different personalaties.
The violas like to call themselves the meat of the orchestra sandwich, which basically means that they like to hide under the pieces of bread rather than call too much attention to themselves. Violists have to struggle with an instrument whose range is forced into a sounding body of air which is perhaps 30 percent smaller than the acoustically appropriate volume. This makes for a constant quest for the ideal viola sound (which some would say would be the viola sitting in its case) and the distinct air of the absent-minded professor amongst violists. If you need someone to fix your computer, start with the viola section.
