Bilboquet (or cup-and-ball game) is first of all a mysterious object, pœtic, almost ambiguous. A double object, which refuses at first to tell its function and prefers one to literally seize it
and experiment it.
Skittle takes over the traditional codes of skittles, but makes its own more radical and more precious reading : a slender leg, finely worked, but avoiding any superfluous decorative effects,
except a discreet marquetry work which changes the color lines into material patches.
