The cylindrical wooden fly whisk handle is finely carved in low relief to depict foliage and flowers. The dual wood color (lighter in the convex; darker in the concave) is naturally developed over time.

A fly whisk is a tool to swat or disturb flies. It is used as part of regalia in some cultures. In Buddhism the fly-whisk represents the symbolic "sweeping" of ignorance and mental afflictions.
