Kelabit Megalith, Sarawak State Museum

Kelabit megalith at the Sarawak Museum. The Kelabit people are a branch of the Orang Ulu whose home territory is in the highlands of northeastern Sarawak, near the border with Kalimantan, Indonesia. The Kelabit were animistic headhunters until the Second World War, when contact with the outside brought traders and missionaries who converted them to Anglican Christianity. Consequently, the meaning of these carved, funerary megaliths has largely been lost. (Brian K. Smith photo.)
