Description

Jebak Puyuh are the  among the heritage craft arts that can be assumed is increasingly forgotten. Its use as a trap for small birds such as quail is not as common as it used to be. Nevertheless, one aspect that remains to be discussed is the uniqueness of its appearance which uses a combination of weaving techniques and wood carving art.

For example, Jebak Puyuh from Terengganu is made from angsana wood. The jenang part is carved with silat perforated carvings with the motif of breadfruit flowers and filigree of bean shoots and breadfruit flowers with awan larat pattern. while on the left and right side of the carving with the motif of bunga dala.
