Distant relatives?

I just painted this kendama for my friend Paul Miller over at www.varietyartsblog.com

. More on that later. Anyhow I'm about to mail it back to him along with an old webcam of mine when I noticed an odd resemblance between the two. One designed hundreds if not thousands of years ago, and the other within the last eight years.

Granted they both serve different purposes entirely, but I find it interesting to note that the older of the two has been in use since its inception and the newer is already nearly obsolete.
