  deun ka-lah

 

Thailand

In the traditional Thai game deun ka-lah, two halves of a coconut shell, are attached to a circa 1-1.5 meter long rope, one on either end, through a hole drilled in the shell and then affixed with a knot on the underside.

 

These young players, dressed in traditional Thai outfits, complete with traditional topknots called juk, are demonstration how these coconut-shell shoes are to be used.
