MATERIAL: Inner Bark (Aquilaria Malaccensis Tree)
TYPE: Manuscript
DIMENSIONS: 3 meters long
NOTES: According to scholar Roberta Rollo, “Just for avoiding confusion, these manuscripts are not made of palm leaves but from the inner bark of the Aquilaria Malaccensis Tree. This is a very important feature of these manuscripts, since indeed all the other manuscripts in Indonesia were made in palm leaf, whereas the Batak and the south Sumatran manuscripts seem to represent a kind of an exception."
