Do you know what the ‘death ship’ is for?
In other word, the ‘death ship’ is a coffin.
The picture of the ‘death ships’ above are found in the famous Painted Cave (Gua Kain Hitam). Paintings of longboats implicating carrying the souls of the deceased on a dangerous journey to the land of the dead can be seen on the wall of the Painted Cave. These ‘death ships’ found at the Niah National Park are to be believed some 40,000 years old.
