My series and parallel circuits made from aluminium tape (my copper tape still hasn’t arrived in the mail :( )

I based my illustration off of Oscar Wilde’s short story the Nightingale and the rose.
Originally I created it using conductive ink, but it didn’t provide enough electricity to the LED to light it up properly so I re did it with the Aluminium tape.

You give the Nightingale the rose and it lights up red by connecting the two pressure points on the feet and tail.
