MUKAH: Taman Kala Dana beach here has a new attraction in the form of a simple structure made from recycled woods and other materials thanks to the effort and creativity of a group people.

The group created replicas representing a dragon, a hut, hornbill and a traffic light and a backdrop using the dead woods and other materials collected from the beach.

Simultaneously they also helped in cleaning the beach.

The group comprised five members of Pertubuhan Impian Mukah, Rejang Fine Artist Group (three), Terendak (four), and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) Faculty of Applied Arts and Creative (five).

A member of Rejang Fine Artists Group Leonard Darimi, said the project of building replicas at Taman Kala Dana beach was organised by Mukah Parliament Service Centre.

According to him, phase one of the project began with creating naga kecundang (defeated dragon) from the half buried dead wood, followed by the other four replicas in phase two.

“The replicas, except the dragon, are aesthetic in nature meaning that, they have respective functions,” he told New Sarawak Tribune last Monday.

Taman Kala Dana beach is the site for the annual tourism-oriented festival, Mukah Kaul, which is usually held in April.
