Wooden rice beater from Bali. Local name; panaptapan
1900-1950
Antique object from the Bali before 1950. These ricebeaters were used after the harvest to flatten the top surface of a bundle rice arens, before these bundles were taken to the rice barns. The use of these ricebeaters stopped when new types of rice were introduced in Bali around 1970. On one side of the ricebeater an image of Dewi Sri, goddess of the rice, has been carved. No doubt to ensure a rich harvest. Pls click on the photo for more photos and info.
