This is a unique and beautiful wood Coconut Grater from Zaramo People of Tanzania. This coconut grater "mubuzi"is made of a wooden seat and a stainless steel plate with saw-like teeth around its edges, another words, a collapsible wooden stool with a serrated metal blade on one end. A coconut grater is a carved wooden object that every Zaramo household owns. People take pride in the graters, which are simple and plain or decorated with a variety of geometric patterns that may be incised or burned into the surface. A person generally orders one from a nearby woodcarver, and a woman is expected to bring one to her marriage. A graters is often used simply as a stool, particularly if, as sometimes happens, the metal blade breaks off. This grater is a nicely burnished wood with a nice patina. Collected in the field. This would be a lovely addition to your home or collection.
