This woman is sitting in her family lean-to shelter surrounded by some of the typical accoutrements of Batek life. Beside her are a bamboo blowpipe dart quiver, some pandanus baskets, some wadded up cloth sarongs, a pile of uncooked takop tubers (Dioscorea orbiculata), and a charred section of bamboo which has been used for cooking. Behind her, stuck in the thatch, are some sections of blowpipe bamboo, and in front, hanging from a pole, is a bundle of pith that will be used to make the butt-cones of blowpipe darts.
