  The Making Of Pua Kumbu
The pua kumbu, the hand-woven warp ikat textile of the Iban, represents the quintessence of Iban culture.
Pua embun is highly prized and is recognized by its deep colour, and the distinctive smell of ginger and oil of the kepayang fruit (Pangium edule) both of which are respectively the most important mordant and presevative used in Iban weaving.
The pua kumbu is used for the many rituals of a person's life from birth to death: to wrap a baby for the ceremony of its first bath (mering anak mandi) and at death to screen a corpse (sapat) while it is laid out in state on the verandah before burial.

 Archaeology Insitute, Tel-Aviv University   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The master joints at Mt. Pua rarely intersect flint nodules, so the thick limestone beds were crushed and broken along joints before the flint was extracted out of the limestone matrix.
An extensive quarry landscape was developed at Mt. Pua in the central Dishon Valley, upper Galilee, Israel, during the late Lower Paleolithic to early Middle Paleolithic, as indicated by the presence of handaxe performs, chopping tools and Levallois cores and debitage.
Pua must have been exploited by generations of foragers and thus represent a monumental landmark in the Paleolithic landscape.
