An admixture of mud and husk was used to make this parhendi, which was located in a covered space adjacent to the courtyard of the house. On the front surface, a floral motif was made using relief work by the woman of the family. There was only enough space for one water pot, which was covered with a plate and a tumbler was placed on it.
