Summary
"The British Museum A.C. Haddon Collection contains eight mountain string figures collected by Alfred Cort Haddon during his 1888 expedition to the Torres Strait. These are the earliest string figure artefacts known. This paper gathers together the available documentation and provides a comparative study of each figure. A construction method for each figure is also provided: methods are taken or adapted from identical or similar figures where these exist, but where no such figure is available and efficient construction has been devised."
