Why this is a
Masterpiece

Although jars were generally used for storing grains, people in mountainous regions instead made jar-shaped utensils with easily accessible materials for easy transportation. This shows how tools were interlinked with the environment of each region.

History of the Object
The Vegetable Tub, a jar-shaped kitchen utensil, stores dried grains, and is woven out of tree strips. These tubs were plastered with mud, and cattle dung in mountainous areas to prevent grains leakage and insects.
