Lat. [Orbis pictus] - World in pictures



Inspirated by teaching method developed by education reformator Jan Amos Komensky.

POI

----------------------

Poi, the object, the thing we like and play with has three main parts. Loop, ring, knot, some handle where you hold them. Then string, chain, body, some tale connecting handle with ball, wick the head.



----------------------

TIME

----------------------

Time, relation between two Poi and their direction. They can move same or opposite direction to each other. When they move same direction together, following the same path it's called parallel. When they move the same direction, but half path, half a way from eah other it's alternate. When they move opposite dirrcetion, their heads allways met, cross they paths. When they met 'at 6 and 12 a clock' it's buttefly. When they met at '3 and 9 a clock', it's split.



----------------------

CIRCLE

----------------------

Circle, according to it's center and lenght of your Poi is the shape that the Poi head creates. When the center of the circle is your shoulder and you move the Poi, like prolonging your hand, than we call it long arm. When the center is your elbow and you spin only with half of your hand, than it's called an elbow. When the center is your hand, then you create the circle only by the Poi, is called circle again. When you short your Poi, that the small circle got a name buzzsaw.



----------------------

PLANE

----------------------

Plane, place in relation with your body, the Poi passes during the spin. When you spin bettween your hands, in the middle, than the place is buzzsaw. Closer to the middle, between your hand and body is inside or sometime inversion. Where your hand is moving is hand plane, but people like to call it wheel or wall plane in case of they're at your side or one in the back and one in the front of you. Where the Poi head moves, lay Poi plane and when you prolong your hand, you can get the Poi head to touch the outside.

Pretty - though "tale" is a mightily confusing word to use for the chain, as "tails" and more commonly the ribbons off the poi.

Rather than 'tale' the term 'body' has been used in discussion before which I found to be more clear. Interesting stuff though smile
