The Tibetan Cage
- 2 x 2.5m (8ft) spars
- 8 x 1.0m (3ft 3in) stave
- 4 x 1.8m (6ft) staves
- Sisal or light cord
Lash 2 x 1.0m staves to the underside of either end of the 2.5m spars using square lashings.
The 4 x 1.8m staves are tied together using a variation of the figure of eight lashing and the bottoms of the spars opened out to form a pyramid. The four legs of the pyramid are then square lashed to the long spars.
The remaining one metre spars are lashed to the top of the long spars to make a base for the pyramid.
The final touch is to lace across the sides and back of the pyramid to create a decorative effect and the cage is ready to transport a willing volunteer.
