These very original paper toys of Hudoq Dancers were created by Indonesian designer Julius Perdana, from Paper Replika website. Hudoq dance is a part of Dayak Modang and Dayak Bahau tribe rituals (East Borneo), it regulary performs after planting rice padi on September to October. Dayak people believe all their dance movement was came straigth from heaven. Dance itself is for honoring their ancestor spirits which they believe always gather around them in planting season. They believed their ancestor came from Asung Luhung or The Great Mother who decended from the sky in the upper course of Mahakam River, Apokayam. The Asung Luhung possesed god's power who can summon good and evil spirits. The good ones, Jeliang Tok Hudoq were sent by Asung Luhung to help human with their knowledge and share seeds for planting. Because of Hudoq frightening appearance they have been told to wear disguise as half man and half bird creature.


Estes paper toys bem originais de Dançarinos Hudoq foram criados pelo designer indonésio Julius Perdana, do site Paper Replika. A dança do Hudoq faz parte dos rituais da tribo Dayak Modang e Dayak Bahau (Borneo Oriental), que se realiza depois do plantio do arroz entre setembro e outubro. O povo de Dayak acredita que todo o seu movimento de dança veio direto do céu. A dança em si é para homenagear seus espíritos ancestrais, que eles acreditam sempre se reunir em torno deles na época de plantio. Eles acreditam que seu ancestrais vieram de Asung Luhung ou da Grande Mãe, que desceu do céu no curso superior do rio Mahakam, Apokayam. O Asung Luhung possuía o poder de Deus que pode convocar espíritos bons e maus. Os bons espíritos Jeliang Tok Hudoq foram enviados por Asung Luhung para ajudar os humanos com seus conhecimentos e compartilhar sementes para o plantio. Por causa da aparência assustadora do Hudoq, eles foram instruídos a usar a fantasia metade homem e metade pássaro.
