The shuttles were designed to carry the weft threads back and forth through the warp threads on a loom, allowing the weaver to create a patterned fabric.. The designs on this shuttle is typically symbolic and may represent various aspects of nature, such as plants, animals, and insects. They may also depict important cultural and spiritual motifs, which is considered a powerful symbol of strength and wisdom. In addition to their decorative function, the carved designs on the shuttles may have served a practical purpose as well. They may have helped the weavers to identify their own shuttles in a communal weaving space.
