The handle of the catapult is carved with an anthropomorphic figure with a rounded belly. Its eyes are carved in coffee beans. The long arms are raised towards the sky, forming two large cylinders. The latter form the branches of the catapult on which was tied a soft band, where the projectile was placed.

These catapults were used to hunt animals of a small size, such as birds or small prey.
