The art of metal-casting was known in the Brunei Sultante as long as the 16th century.
Early trade with China, India and the Middle East may have ushered in the craft along with the forms and decorative motifs.
In the Malay Archipelago, especially in the Borneo and Indonesian island, the miniature cannons served as preferred monetary tender, desirable marriage dowry and were treasured as an heirloom and a status symbol.
Value and purpose of cannon:
2.)Fighting and defense
4.)Marking Royal Occasion
5.) Conferring of Awards and Title
