cat's cradle. If you read the book, I used the hands to look like praying and performing the string game so it goes along with the idea that religion is just like the cat's cradle, the cradle looking neither like a cat or a cradle and religion unable to produce what it professes. The Fat Man bomb is what Hoeniker was famous for, both the destruction it caused and the science. So I made it look like a snow globe because the ice nine he created eventually lead to the destruction of the world much like the destruction that the fat man bomb made. I hade fun making it. I wasn't pleased at first but theres alway that ugly stage that gets really discouraging.
