Both communities have the sustainable potency to uphold their skill in wood carving; the existence of balontang, tugu ngugu tautn, templaq, klerekng and ornaments on old lamin, which abundantly found in their village signify their centuries-old competence in wood carving. Nevertheless, there are some style and type differences on carved wooden object between the Benuaq-Tunjung and that of the Ngaju, Lawangan and Maanyan. For instance, physically, the Ngaju, Lawangan and Maanyan tends to carve plain and massive wooden figures, whereas those of the Benuaq-Tunjung are more dynamic and enriched with attractive scrolls.
