Iban Art: Sexual Selection and Severed Heads 
---
 Michael Heppell & Others

A fascinating book that starts with a study of the method and purpose of art among Iban women. They perfected the weaving arts of ikat, sungit or pilih so as to encourage men to go out and take heads. They were then able to select a suitable partner from the men who were most successful. The book concludes by contrasting male art which, unlike female art, was mainly three dimensional as they carved a range of ornamental and ritual objects. As New Hardback in an As New Dust Jacket. 180 pages with a bibliography index and many coloured photographs.
