For setting trap. Dark wood stick, undecorated and sharpened at one end. Tutum rusa. According to Hose, used when setting a trap, armed with a sharp spear, for catching pig and deer. "A curious practice of the Ibans on setting such a trap is to measure the appropriate height of the spear by means of a rod surmounted with a carving of a human figure." "The trapper carries a stick one end of which is carved to represent the human form. He uses this to measure the appropriate height of the traps set for animals of different species."
