Zen Skating Rink

Instead of an aray of boulders surrounded by gravel raked into lines, there is an ice rink.

Skaters must skillfully circle the stones, creating a similar pattern of parallel lines provided by the raking of gravel in a Zen Garden.

The horror version features the blood vista of 8th's rink, combined with half submerged human heads protruding through the ice as described in Dante's Divine Comedy (see links)

       Excellent. [+]   

       Being embedded in ice, the heads would last a long time before they start to go off; a truly inspired detail.

       I put in that variation just for you.
