A potpourri of Sarawakian culture and motifs encompassing various ethnic groups like the Iban, Bidayuh, Orang Ulu and Melanau, complete with the kelireng burial poles and body tattoo which once symbolized valour and rank. Also in the repertoire are the sape (lute) popular among the Kayan and the Kenyah, and the gamelan. Tribes like the Penan still use the blowpipe for hunting in the jungle. Little is known about Baharuddin except that he was represented by the now defunct Anugerah Gallery.
