Flat piece of wood carved to leave a pattern in high relief. The block is inked and pressed onto the skin as a guide for the tattooing. Written on wood, presumably by collector: "Ulun orang" = head of a prawn. Resembles a pattern identified by Hose and Shelford as "A Sea-Dayak modification of the dog design."
