Description of the Drawing

The braille drawing consists of two scoops of ice cream and a cone. The cone has a triangular shape tapering downwards. In contrast to other braille drawings, the ice cream cone is completely filled with dots, in order to imitate the haptic impression of an ice cream cone. The two scoops of ice cream stick out of the cone. The left scoop is an easily recognizable circle. The right scoop lies slightly behind it and is pressed to the other scoop so that, viewed from the front, it is rather shaped like a half moon.

This braille drawing was originally created for the non-profit organisation einfach machbar e. V. during the project “Blind Children Draw Pictures – Drawing with Letters” financed by the charity Aktion Mensch.
