Default Dayak Parang Face Gallery

When collecting Borneo Dayak parang one thing that thrills me are the variations of different faces, or full figures, on the top side of the hilt common among some tribes.
That's why I hoped that we all could share our "faces" so we could together create a huge reference image bank of these variations and enjoy them as pieces of art.
For this reason I think it would be great if this thread was pictures only, no comments or questions here either on origin or of appreciation.
And only pictures of dayak parang were the top of the hilt is dominated by a face or sitting figure, none of the other hilt variations here please.
I hope you all will join and share to make this gallery possible.
Here are mine.

Michael

The same handle as I posted in post #26, only from a different angle.
Because I like this image more as I posted earlier of the same handle, I decided to upload it again in my favorite thread!
