036 Temiar boy carving a pensol

Description

A popular musical instrument with the Orang Asli is the pensol or nose flute. It is made from locally grown bamboo and then patterns are carved on it. It is often possible to tell what tribe the carver belongs to by looking at the design and patterns on it. Sometimes the carver will incorporate his name into the design as well.
