"eight + bow + stick + dash" the younger brother is Eight years old. Underneath is “Bow,” and “Stick,” with an extra little Dash. The male possessions - a Bow and a Stick for hunting, may be given to the YOUNGER BROTHER. The Dash shows him skipping a little in delight as he receives these gifts. This childish skip reminds us that he is the YOUNGER BROTHER - the older brother would not behave so childishly.
