Basket (Hakda / Hagcha / Haydu)

Inventory number SA 34572
Flat basket made of woven rattan used to catch fish or collect snails in the rice fields. It is used when cleaning the rice fields and preparing them for growing the rice seedlings. Women cleverly use these baskets to catch small fish and edible clams in the rice fields between two growing seasons. Often udchang crabs and khinga clams are collected. Text: Prof. Dr. Leah E.
