Blotting Paper

Subject:
Making fire replaces rubbing two sticks with oil-absorbing paper.

Design Concept:
During the Stone Age, barbarians were hard to make fire due to lack of mature skill.They kept trying to figure out, but it still didn’t work how to make fire. One barbarian suddenly found that “super oil absorbing paper” absorbing oil on the face probably could make fire. Therefore, barbarians got an inspiration from oil-absorbing paper to make fire and substitute oil-absorbing paper for rubbing two sticks.
