Dayak Baby Carrier A

The Dayak tribes of Kalimantan and Borneo are highly refined artists, also notorious for traditions of head hunting. Extraordinarily ornate carrying cradles like these are covered with amulets and protective motifs. As children are the greatest treasure of the Dayaks, baby carriers must be heavily insured with magic designs. This carrier from Kalimantan has conus shell disks, coins and numerous Malay bear claws and teeth, as well as, a wonderful beaded panel of spirit figures.
