Quote from: Figleaf on January 26, 2017, 04:02:54 PMMore information on the Minangkabau people here. The big house, (rumah gadang), likely has a government or community assembly function.While the message of the coin is valid, it needs to be understood first in Indonesia.

Quote from: Figleaf on July 15, 2019, 10:24:37 PMBatang Garing is a traditional ornament of the Dayaks. There is a stylised monument of a Batang Garing in Kuala Kapuas, capital of the Kapuas district on Kalimantan (Borneo), though the shape on the coin is more like the Javanese variety. A nice overview is here.

While the Gunungan is the symbolic equivalent of the tree of life, it is a separate cultural expression with a function in Wajang performances the Dayak original doesn't have.
