This top part of a thin pole, coming from Southern Borneo, is very unusual and difficult to classify. It shows three men carved in the round defined with essential features and clad in perizomas; they are disposed in three rows and sit on jars. The item is divided into three parts in tune of the different attitudes of the men and marked by their slimming dimensions.
