Abstract

Borneo is the world’s third largest island, and is shared between Malaysia (Sabah and Sarawak), Brunei and Indonesia (Kalimantan). One thing which stands out about the island is its incredible biological and ethnocultural diversity. It also has a long history of human occupation, dating back to at least 40 000 years ago. As such it has been, and continues to be, a place of archaeological, anthropological and scientific interest. This photo essay attempts in thirty-one images to explore some of this diversity and offer a very brief insight into Borneo’s unique heritage.
Editor’s note: This series of illustrations was discovered on Instagram and were valuable both as a collection of illustrations, and also because their subject matter shed some light on the various and diverse cultures of Borneo.
