Marc Pinto Gallery - Kenyah Roof Finial

 The Architectural Roof Finial - Kenyah Dayak group, East Kalimantan, Borneo

Through my travels, researching the artisan skills and carvings of the Dayaks from Borneo, this particular group, the Kenyah Dayak, has developed skills that differ to most other dayak groups. The complexity and time taken to create these superb finials which decorate the meeting and communial houses and rice barns are simply breathtaking. Most of my travels were within these areas. The the "flow" of these art objects make it very unique and often it represents Dragon (naga) and Hornbill (kenyalang) motifs.

Enquiries welcome.
