Muscat Festival 2012: Omani Craftsman at Oman Heritage & Culture Village

One of the best parts of Muscat Festival is being able to see the traditional Omani lifestyle in the Oman Heritage & Culture Village of Qurum Park.  I love seeing these displays of talented craftsmen working away at simple tasks in pretty much the same way it’s been done for hundreds of years.

What is this gentleman making exactly?  You can see a pile of the finished products on the left side there.  Are they for boats? for use with agriculture?  Anyone out there want to enlighten me?  Here’s a short video of this scene:
