Abstract Uwok, ein führender Mann aus Malingdam, erklettert einen Baum (Sloanea tieghemii) des Bergwaldes, um Brennholz zu gewinnen. Er schlägt mit dem Steinbeil (Querbeil) einen dicken Ast des relativ harten Holzes ab und trägt ihn fort.
To provide firewood Uwok, a leading man in Malingdam, climbs up a tree (Sloanea tieghemii) in the mountain-forest and cuts off a big branch of relatively hard wood by means of a stone adze. The work being well done, the blade (of andesite) remains undamaged since crossfibres are carefully avoided.
