Ladder, Dayak People, Kalimantan, Indonesia, Polychrome Wood Encrusted with Blue Porcelain. Musee du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with Capturing Reality.
The Dayak people are best known for their fine wood carvings. The scale has two scary faces and is summoned by an aso, which means -dog- but which represents a stylized dragon-snake, the mouth wide open. This animal protects evil spirits and can be associated with fertility.
