when I visited my wifes cousin in philly recently, she had this huge thing leaning against a wall.
she has this thing for unusual stuff, has some stuff laying around her house that shes picked up around the world.(she was a news reporter/ photographer and worked in many countries over the past 25 years)
she sublet an apartment in france a while ago, and when she went to get rent from the tenant when he was leaving, he didn't have enough money so he gave her some of the things he collected.
This was one of them.
At first, I thought it was some kind of torture device, as those little sharp rocks in there are really sharp.
maybe an older surfboard for someone who likes to inflict injury on themselves?
She told me it is from India, a rice thresher. OK, I learn something new every day.
She might have said wheat, but Im sure she told me a rice thresher.
