Rings (活動卡環)

Resource Identifier:

This piece is in the shape of an animal. Each of its two feet was linked to a square ring. One side of the square ring protrudes like a wild goose head. The mouth of the animal bites the ring; its tail becomes a wild goose. Some wood remained inside the socket. The shape of this piece is unique. The neck of the animal, the ring and the square ring can all be turned around.
