dc.description This man is applying coats of poison to newly made blowpipe darts. The latex of the poison tree (Antiaris toxicaria) has been dried on a bamboo spatula, which is stored in a thin bamboo tube. Here he is heating the spatula to soften the poison and then rolling the tips of the darts in the sticky poison. A bundle of pith from a type of rattan vine, which will be made into dart butt-cones, dries over the fire.
