8 Portraits of Unang Bagito Showcasing Unique Wooden Cane Collection

Unang Bagito, a comedian who was popular in the 80s and 90s, turns out to have a unique fact. Unang has a unique collection of wooden canes. The wooden cane can be used as decoration or a tobacco pipe. Unang admitted to the KapanLagi.com team that his hobby of collecting wooden canes started around 2017.

"About 3 years before the pandemic, the idea came from a friend at the pesantren (Islamic boarding school). I saw him enjoying cutting wood, so I became interested and bought carving tools to carve wood. Then I tried and it turned out I could make canes," said Unang Bagito.

First, he mentioned that his artistic soul allows him to learn quickly and self-taught in making canes.

Unang obtains the raw materials for making canes from shooting locations. Some of these raw materials are teak wood and Chinese petai trees.

"Currently, I have made around 20 canes. I don't sell them, I just keep them as a collection. Sometimes I like to bring them along, and if anyone is interested, they can have it as a gift, it's up to them how much they want to give," Unang continued.

Unang then explained that the characteristic of all his cane collections is a ring ornament as a sweetener. This is a spontaneous idea that emerged from this 61-year-old man.

"All of my cane collections have rings as ornaments on the hollowed-out cane as a sweetener, at least adding grandeur to the cane. (The idea) just came to mind, oh there's a hole, let's patch it up with a gemstone ring," he continued.
