Every family in the Peruvian Amazon seem to have a collection of batans and masos--wooden bowls and tubs along with an associated club that they use to grind grain and other foods. Batans are round or rectangular about 10 inches or so across, and shallow, making them ideal for crushing grain. They constructed from an indeterminate wood.

The masos or clubs are made from a heavy, hard wood that resembles palo sangre, Brosimum, often used for fine carvings.

Batans and masos are usually seen as pairs, so I sell them that way
