The beigoma is a traditional Japanese top. Players wrap their tops in thin, 60-cm cords, which they use to launch the tops onto the playing surface of a canvas fabric sheet partially stretched over a bucket. As I made my own beigoma, casted into my own abstract symbols, I see them as evokers and generators of my passions and actions; such as basketball, dancing, etc. That connects this social and playful activity with my fantasy. Includes one beigoma, one spinning string/rope, and one pocket to store the beigoma.
