Terabai shield of Iban

In former days, a shield (terabai) was essential to an Iban. The terabai was used to protect him from the enemy's spear or sword in any combat.

The uniqueness of terabai design is reinforced by the existence of a modified giant’s head as the main part of terabai design.

Terabai is wear by ngajat dancers during the dance. The terabai is hexagonal in shape, and it has various designs painted on it.
