FACEGRIP MANDAU FROM BORNEO
A Mandau with an unusual facegrip
Probably from the Kayan of the Baram area in Sarawak.
The carved spiritface is looking to the left,
which gives the sword a powerfull expression when carried.
The blade is simple but laminated.
The scabbard has the typical four leaf motif of the Baram area.
Small restores on the scabbard and hairwork.
