2.3meters/2300mm Iban Dayak Staircase straight from a Longhouse ornament

Borneo Longhouse: Many of the inhabitants of the Southeast Asian island of Borneo (Kalimantan, Indonesia and States of Sarawak and Sabah, Malaysia). The Dayak, live traditionally in buildings known as a longhouse, Rumah panjang / Rumah Betang in Indonesian, rumah panjai in Iban. Common to most of these is that they are built raised off the ground on stilts. Subsequently, divided into a more or less public area along one side and a row of private living quarters lined along the other side. Thus, this seems to have been the way of building best accustomed to life in the jungle in the past. Otherwise, hardly related people have come to build their dwellings in similar ways.

Erosion on the wood is visible due to extreme age and weather exposure.
