Carved door of a private room off a long-house veranda. Heavy wooden door, carved with two entwined figures at top, and another serving as a handle. Small white discs inlaid as eyes of figures and along sides and at bottom of door. At least some of these discs are glazed porcelain. "For a bolt of red cloth I bought the elaborately carved door of a dwelling room . . . . " "A door-frame from the house of Tama Aping Pang, a Sibop. The two little figures above the door were said to represent wawa monkeys." (Furness, The Home-Life of Borneo Head-Hunters, following p. 114.) Illustrated in Charles Hose's "Pagan Tribes of Borneo" as "DOOR OF ROOM IN SEBOP (KLEMANTAN) HOUSE. The two figures near the top probably represent gibbons."
