We mixed the colors of a tree bark, hazelnut, earth, moss, stone and sand, and got these earthen arcs.
For those who want peace and miss nature. A meditative toy for focused, useful and developing games.
Right after birth a child gets into the world full of visual information. There is so much that even the adult nervous system sometimes cannot cope with it. Everything is sparkling and glittering, there are so many unnatural, aggressive and supersaturated colors around. Earth arch stacker is an island of calmness among this multicolored ocean.
