Nepal Churn Butter Handle Carved Wood Folk Art Nepal

$101.25 $135.00

This is a old beautiful hand carved wood Butter Churn that is used in all households throughout Nepal. Throughout the middle hills area of Nepal, we find this unique tool, the butter churn support, known in Nepali as a "Ghurra". They are also often referred to in the vernacular as "Neti". Ghurra act as sort of axis for the churning rod. One end of the Ghurra is tied to rope or cord, and the rope is in turn tied to a post, or some other fixed object. The churn's stick passes through the hole in the Ghurra, with the churning end inserted into the butter jar. There is another churning rope tied around the churn stick in such a way that the two ends of the rope are held (one each) in the butter maker's two hands. Alternately pulling one end of the rope and then the other towards oneself causes the churning stick to twist back and forth, churning the liquid into butter. This Butter Churn has beautifully carved detail and design and would be lovely displayed in a household, on a desk, mantel or bookshelf.
