Ingo Arndt Animal Architecture
“Every day, all over the world, animals and insects set about the purposeful tasks of designing their homes, catching their prey, and attracting their mates. In the process they create gorgeous nests, shelters, and habitats. Capturing 120 of these wonders in all their beauty and complexity, Animal Architecture presents a visually arresting tribute to the intersection of nature, science, function, and design.”
Modern Classic Tie
Step 1 - Start with standard length of rope (about 6-7 feet for wrists). Form a Lark’s Head.
Step 2 - Place the Lark’s Head over the wrists.
Step 3 - You now have a small measure of control over your subject while you finish up.
Step 4 - Wrap the double strand around the wrists once or twice. This distributes the pressure across the wrists and helps prevent loss of circulation
Step 5 - Pull the double strand through the loop created in the provious step.
Step 6 - Separate the double strand into 2 individual strands.
Step 7 - Wrap the individual strands between the wrists and around the other ropes
Step 8 - Pull them up and around again and pull them tight. This cinches the ropes that go around the wrist, making them snug.
Step 9 - Secure your tie by the use of a surgeon’s knot.
Step 10 - The finished tie.
These dudes are fucking legit. They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back. And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
