107 Bamboo quiver for darts used in a blowgun, from Palawan, 48 cm (19") long. Such a quiver is called a "Karaban". It has several bands of finely braided rattan lacing and a carved wooded handle designed to be tucked inside a belt, with a figure of a wild boar, the favorite prey for hunters. A fine patina confirms its age. There are 7 bamboo darts inside. When these were prepared for use the tips were dipped in poison, but the darts in this quiver are all clean and unused, although they do have sharp barbed points. This quiver was made by the Tagbanua Tribe in Palawan Island, one of the oldest ethnic groups in the Philippines.
