Comment: Antique object from the Bali before 1940. These ricebeaters were used after the harvest to flatten the top surface of a bundle rice arens. The use of these ricebeaters stopped when new types of rice were introduced in Bali around 1970. Probably belonging to a simple Balinese rice farmer; other rice beaters may have a decorated side, and in some cases even a handle carved in the shape of an animal, like a turtle!The colours with which the floral motivs are decorated are well preserved. Real folk-art!
