Stock Photo Description
Hand carved statue carved from a single piece of the robust Bornean Ironwood (Eusideroxylon zwageri). The posts are known as Patong in the Dayak Community (Ethnic Minority groups) of Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo. Used as a construction material in Borneo for the community Lamin (Longhouse), houses and boardwalks. Borneo was once home to vast areas of Ironwood forest which has since been significantly reduced over the last 30 or 40 years due to extreme logging.
