My artwork Kulai Sabe (Before Law) is about the Gabugab (Club) and the old man. This old man is one of the Council of Elders who deliver justice to people who have committed crimes. He is both the Judge and the Jury.

The Club is the weapon used to deliver the punishment. This can either be a crack on the head or beheading. These old people kept peace within the community be enforcing the Lore. The Council of Elders do exist on Badu today to serve political justice.
