    thanks. You take a wire brush type thing with a handle and run it along the metal grater thing, and it makes a sound. It's used as a musical instrument.

    That's what I thought but didn't see anything in the picture that you would use to brush them to make the maraca like sound.

    So I thought maybe they were for making mango zest, lol.

    it's the thing in the guy's right hand, what appeared to be flexible wires in a wooden handle. I didn't touch it.

    I have this Mango tree that produces a mango over a pound each...my hand is big but these buggers dwarf me.
    Purple shade to the skins.
    I wonder when they are ripe? Soon I hope.
