Heart String Figure

Posted By on February 17, 2009

Here is more on the String Figure pictured in my last post. 

This string figure actually is only one in a series of figures.  The first figure  you’ll see in the sequence is called “Two Eyes” which is represented by the two diamonds.  Next the eyes are separated into “Eyes with bags under them” and then “The Heart” which while making a great heart shape is actually called “The Mouth” in the original Inuit figure.  You can continue on with one of my favorites, “Two Women Fighting” who eventually transform into “Eagles” and fly away which dissolves the figure.

Here is my video of this sequence.
