    Including several examples of and information about traditional Native American string figures: How many string figures are there? The number of possible designs is virtually limitless. Instructions for making over two thousand traditional patterns have been published since 1888, when anthropologist Franz Boas first described how to make an Eskimo string figure. ~ link to String Figure Magazine.
