(inspiration) Abacus

I went to the market today in search of some new finds for art and at first I was disappointed because the people I usually like to check out and buy from were not there today (it was really cold, I don't blame them) --- but then I found a series of things anyway and came home with a chill, but very pleased.

One of the things I found was a little miniature brass abacus just like the one below:

We had a large colorful abacus when I was a kid and as with most things from my childhood (so predictable) I have a soft spot for them on top of the obvious historical relevance they have...

Now to come up with a suitably fitting composition for something this neat.
