About the object

Fruit, such as pandanus or coconuts or arrowroot tubers, belonged to the main nutritional staples on the pre-colonial Marshall Islands. Special tools such as this one had culinary uses, for example in preparing meals or conserves from the fruit. A clam shell was affixed to a wooden rack, whereby the fruit could be finely scraped out and then subsequently cooked or dried.
