Ceremonial Headdress Rattan or Bamboo; Hornbill feathers; Monkey fur; beadwork Sarawak (Malaysia - Borneo) 20th century This headdress is said to be a Dyak (Bidayuh) Chief's ceremonial headdress. It is also similar to the headdresses of the Iban and Orang Ulu warriors, and uses similar materials and designs. The Iban and Bidayuh are close neighbors, and together make up the main population of Sarawak.
Beaded bag Rattan; Seed Beads Sarawak (Malaysia - Borneo) 20th century This cylindrical bag of glass beads on woven rattan features two figures, said to represent Japanese soldiers in the jungle during World War II. There are also numerous "aso" motifs in red, white, yellow, orange, and green. This bag probably comes from the Kayan and Kenyah people of the central highlands, or the Kelabit and Orang Ulu groups of northeastern Sarawak.
