Abstract

This research explores the craft and creativity of the art of Ilang as an interpretation of the philosophy of ‘Being a Teacher’ in the life of the Iban community. Symbolism towards the elements of nature is often used to express various ideas and meanings about their practices, culture, and life. This research uses a qualitative approach as a whole. Data obtained through qualitative approach using observations and interviews. Overall research has found that the human mind is made up of natural properties. Humans learn from nature and create the aesthetics they learn from it. Nature is made as a 'teacher', a human mind built from nature. This means that the developing world teaches humans to think creatively and to create something using natural resources, such as parang Ilang. Every event that happens around human life may not be separated from nature. The Iban people live in a natural environment. For them, nature is a ‘teacher’ to solve all the problems that occur in their lives. For some individuals in the Iban community, they are skilled at producing crafts that use the natural elements that exist in their environment. The aesthetic values of parang Ilang can also be seen through the uses of nature such as the consumption of wood (Eusideroxylon Zwageri) on the part of parang's coverThis indicates that nature as a teacher or terms of thought and ideology, as well as the symbolism of perseverance and psychology of the maker of the parang Ilang. Through nature, the Iban community made crafts using natural elements on the parang Ilang that reflected their aesthetic and artistic values as well as their culture.
