a medium size hampatong (52cm),iban dayak;protective figure collected in 1973 by a dutch collector. He organised an expedition through west kalimantan :a retired army officer and 3 local people were sent to negociate .most of the objects were gathered along the river landak This one was collected in the village of Dari.after the negotiation there was a long ceremony with the kepala adat (head of traditionnal belief)and local nobility .Thanks to this expedition and his report we can identify the style of this hampatong and three others as "landak style "
