About the object

Nets made from coconut bast, as in this case, were used by women to catch small fish in the lagoons. According to Antonie Brandies, they were also used to introduce small fish to freshwater lakes on the islands. The fish could accustom themselves to their new environment and were kept thus as a source of food.
