A Mongol lasso. The "orga" is usually made of three pieces of wood. First, two longer pieces are spliced together with soft leather strips to make the base. Then a shorter piece of very flexible wood is added to the top, one end of a leather strip is secured to the tip of this piece. Then the other end of the leather strip is looped down and tied to the base allowing for enough slack so the leather can go over a horses head. When used the "orga" is "flipped" over onto the animals head by jolting twist to the base of the "orga". This piece is modern.
