Abstract
Drei Jäger zeigen 17 Figuren: Es werden Tiere, Körperteile und Gebrauchsgegenstände dargestellt, die jeweils von einer Person ausgeführt werden. Verschiedene Darstellungen zeigen das Objekt nur einmal, und zwar fertig. Andere lassen auch dessen Bewegungen erkennen.
17 figures of the Polar Eskimo string-game repertoire are demonstrated. Animals, bodyparts or utensils of daily use are imitated by string configurations. All figures can be performed by a single person. Some patterns present the object in a stable state, others also show its movements. Playing string-games is still a very popular pastime pleasure among the Polar Eskimos.
