- Curator's comments
Blowpipes were no longer made or used in the Kelabit Highlands at the time this collection was made, 1986-88, because there were enough guns, but were still made and used in the Kerayan (in Kalimantan, over the Indonesian border).
Accompanied by associated equipment (As1988,22.8.a-c, e).
