Central Kalimantan is the biggest province on the island, covering 153,800 square kilometers, most of which is jungle. The northern area is mountainous and difficult to reach, the central dense tropical forest and the south swampy with many rivers. The three Dayak sub-tribes who inhabit this province are the Ngaju, Ot Danum, and Ma’anyan Ot Siang. The Ngaju people are nomadic, adhering to old Kaharingan religion, a form of ancestor worship combined with elements of animism. With an approximate population of 6,000, the Ot Danum is the largest among the three sub-tribes.
The Ot Danums live in longhouses which sometimes have as many as 50 rooms. The women are known for their skill in plaiting rattan, palm leaves, and bamboo. Like other Dayaks, the men are good hunters, using only simple hunting tools. The art of Central Kalimantan clearly bear the marks of the Kaharingan religion, the traditional belief of the Dayaks in the hinterland of Central Kalimantan. Building styles, statues and carvings have been influenced by the Chinese, and Hindu-Javanese. Aside from their aesthetic value, many objects are appreciated for their magical properties.
