Product Description:

AW0297 Three antique & beautiful Dayak Regatta Paddles Traditional Watersport from Sarawak Borneo.

Circa 1940-50s collection, the center paddle bears marking of the Dayak Warrior pattern(Bunga Terung).

Each carved from Billion / Ironwood, hardest wood in the world.

Some edges may be worn due to old age, but otherwise all in good condition and never repaired. Length: 95 - 108 cm / 37.4 - 42.5 inches Width: 11 - 16 cm / 4.3 - 6.3 inches Weight: 1.6 kg / 3.5 lb After packing: 4 kg / 8.8 lb Wikipedia: The Bunga Terung, which translates to the eggplant flower, is the first tattoo a Borneo male would receive.

The Bunga Terung is a coming of age tattoo which marks the passage of a boy into manhood.

The Bunga Terung has a spiral at the center of the eggplant flower the Tali Nyawa, which means the rope of life and is identical to the underside of a tadpole which symbolizes the beginning of a new life.[citation needed] All the tattoos, following the eggplant flower, are like a diary.

A young male would go out on his own to find knowledge and from each place he went to he would get one tattoo to mark not only where he is from but also where he has been.

From each place the tattoos have different styles so the regional differences in his tattoos would tell the story of his journeys in life.[citation needed] Borneo tattoos do not just mark physical journeys.

Some represent big life events, such as fathering children etc.

For example there is a tattoo a man can have done on his hand called the Entegulun.

You can only have this if you have taken heads.

Some tattoos can be for protection, for example the tattoos on the throat (Ukir Rekong) are meant to give strength to the skin on the throat, to stop the bearers enemies from being able to sever the bearers head.[citation needed] I will ship via Courier Service(5-7 working days) worldwide, insured.
