Description

Eighteen small pieces of wood that are tied together with black thread and appear to be a mobile. As well as this, there is one small cardboard fish that was out of something such as a box. This is colored on both sides. One side was already printed as a fish, with red circles, and some coloration was added. The other side is decorated with black, yellow, red, green, purple, orange, brown, and blue, as are all the other pieces. As well as this, there is an "ojo de Dios" made of two sticks lashed together, and a rectangular pattern of string wrapped around the sticks.
