text: The Ang's throne in one of the morungs was small but well carved. It is strictly taboo for any other villager to sit on it. There were very few carvings in the village and the "Tiger" carvings of Chen were absent.
text: (87) There were one or two very good human figures and in one or two places the eclipse carving, the frog eating the sun. The frog clan does not exist in Sengha as it does in Mon, Totok and Wakching.
