Default paddle identification please

I have recently bought these paddles and I am not sure where they come from come from. They look to me to be Indonesian, maybe Dayak with the painting.

Default Translation please.

Is there any way that this could be translated please? I think this is a form of the Dayak language.

To avoid any further confusion, and as this is simply a continuation of the original "paddle identification please" thread, I have merged the two threads into one and opened it for discussion once again.

Best,
Robert

The words on the paddle reads "Bandar haru (?) Perak"...
I don't know what Bandar haru means... perak = silver in malay/indonesian
