This very old & interesting shaman box (lupong manang) was beautifully carved by the Dayak Iban people of Borneo. Once used to carry different medicinal purpose items that could only be handled by Shaman/Witch Doctor. Carved out of wood and tree bark with remarkably fine craftmanship, weaved in Dayak motifs with rattan all around the body. Two mythological creatures carved and sitting on hunkered position on both side are absolutely beautiful, while another is sitting on top of the lid, featuring a wild boar tusk as the handle.
