We can deduct from these xylologic studies that the Dayak carvers knew and worked on several essences from the tropical forest. Four of them are commonly called “iron-wood”, but this qualifier could be used globaly for this whole group. The Big Statues sculpture use of the Elmerilla essence for the realization of boxes intended to conserve the bones of the deceased, widens this diversity of choice. Recently, an ethno -botanic study done by village people of an Iban group, Sarawak, showed that they identified more than 650 plant species, among which more than 200 trees, and 50 of them producing wood, tree bark and other materials used for pieces of art. Like all artists, the dayak carvers probably chose their materials according to the use and purpose of their production, such as Big Statues sculpture , but also according to the availability of the essences on the production site, their repartition changing according to the altitude and the adequacy of the tree with their artistic project – size, location of the nodes, rectitude, etc. – The “Hampatong” Big Statues sculpture of Borneo owe their great longevity to the strong mechanic resistance and to the extreme density of the woods in which they have been carved but also to the judicious choice of logs by the artists. To this, is added the exceptional conditions of conservation for most of the archeological pieces. The rivers’ silt or the inside of funerary caves where they rested, protected them from the light and in a stable atmosphere during centuries from torrential rain, from the burning sun of the equatorial climate and from fungal or woodborers attacks. They are still in front of us, standing, challenging time and our gaze for our utmost pleasure. Big Statues sculpture
