A very special unique pull spinning toy created in the highlands of Timor using the most basic of tools. Beautifully hand carved Timorese traditional warriors complete with handwoven blanket and headdress from red cedar wood and disk.
By pre twisting the strings (as in the photograph) then pulling apart the warriors until the string unravels to close to its peak point then giving the warriors a little extra tug and releasing them, the centrifugal force creates an opposing force rewinding the disk in the opposite direction. The aim of the game is to keep your disk spinning as long as possible. The faster your disk goes the more distinct becomes the pitch from the flying disk.
