Hampatong is a general term for a statue or figure. This statue of Dayak, made of wood, depicts both a male and female image therefore representing a mythical ancestral couple. It is believed the ancestors protect the people of the village by warding off evil spirits.
All pieces are traditionally handcrafted which is why no two pieces are the same. Each has a slight difference in size, shape and/or color contributing to the uniqueness and originality of each beautiful piece.
