Tarro
Object of the Month of August 2022
-

Since Light village is not a territory characterized by cork oak forests and the harvest of cork, the inhabitants of Light village did not stop using this material, making, among other objects, tarros.
At a time when agricultural work required long days of toil in the field, workers used tarros to transport meals and food to be taken during the day.
The object has a cylindrical shape with a wooden suspension handle. It would have a cork lid that does not exist today, forming a set.
