Blowpipe Hunter

The painting illustrates an elderly Iban leader, demonstrating his skillfulness in handling the blow pipe. A blow pipe is a hand-made weapon for hunting, normally equipped with a metal spear fastened with rattan at one end. A dart with poisonous tip is inserted at the other end to point to the target. ‘Blowpipe Hunter’ portrays the legacy of the Iban survival, which should be upheld and passed on to the next generation.
