A bajot is a low surface that can be used to support a wide range of objects. This bajot was painted and had decorative spindles along its rails, which are a feature in different types of furniture in the Vagad region. Currently stowed away in the storeroom, this bajot was previously used for religious offerings and ritual objects during puja (worship).
