In Borneo, babies are transported in baby carriers that are carved of wood and often decorated with colorful beadwrok. Carriers with human faces or figures are reserved for children of aristocrats. The present object is a miniature symbolic version of such a carrier. Although it is just one-third the actual size, this piece displays the same iconography of an actual acristocrat’s baby carrier in its full glory. The centerpiece depicts three heart-shaped faces with shell-inlaid eyes, three of which are missing. Small brass bells, old coins and animal tusks dangle from the top of the carrier, making jingling sounds that are meant to scare off marauding spirits.
