About the object

Mallets and tools resembling hammers, such as these ones, had various uses. Hammers were used in conjunction with matching chisels (II/1377) to seal the gaps in the hulls of boats with caulk. During the tattooing process, small wooden sticks (II/1379.01), subsequently applied with colour, were used to punch patterns in the skin. Bast, with its many applications, would be hammered to make it a soft and workable material, as in the case of mat weaving.
