Rice is abundant along the Amazon River. It's planted at high water in the flood plain and harvested when the river recedes. The grain is pounded by hand to loosen the chaff then the mix is tossed into the air with the tinaja to separate the chaff from the grain.
These tinaja are made from the palm and often given a certain decorative flair. Sizes vary from about 1 ft across to nearly 3 ft.
