14.4475200000 cm. W x 89.6950200000 cm. L Since the middle is connected by strings, the width of the object may change., Item (Overall)
This piece consists of two long cylindrical pieces of wood with white strings interlocking in the middle. The strings are attached to the pieces of wood at the back and there is string wrapped around each end of the pole, with a bunch of yellow rope at one end of one stick. There is also a red cloth stuck around a stick on one side.
This was labelled as a piece of a loom. It is believed to be a heddle, which is used to seperate warp threads in a piece of material. Since this piece consists of many strings attached to two pieces of wood, it would work well as a heddle.
