Kelembit (shield in Kenyah) was once used for protection during battles. It is made from light but resilient wood and often decorated with intricate carvings. Other Dayak (Borneo indigenous) groups also have their own shields and are called by different names.

This simplified version of the Kelembit was handcrafted by 74-year old, Lian Balan, a Kenyah man from Long Moh (Baram, Sarawak – Malaysia).
