Prayer box
The net bag of this sample is made from woven lines, with a woven straw ring attached around the opening, along with a sackcloth fastening belt. On the front-center face of this box is a huddled Hundred-pace Snake pattern composed of magnetic pieces with red and black paints. A shell piece encircles the center. On both sides of the snake pattern, a human figure can be seen. The human figure consists of magnetic pieces with consecutive circular matte fixed on the circumference of the center. Each of the two sides of the box is decorated with three solar patterns, which are also made up of embedded magnetic pieces.
