This research was aimed to describe the results of the Toraja Culture that contains types of Geometry Transformation. Besides, this was also to describe the types of Geometry Transformation used to carve Traditional House in Toraja, which is Tongkonan. This research is qualitative research with an Ethnography approach. The informant of the study was a carver of the traditional house of Toraja. The data was collected from literature, observation, interview result, and the notes of Ethnography during the research, and also there were some pictures of the carving. The researcher used source triangulation to collect valid data. Based on the results, domain analysis, and taxonomy analysis, the carving is one of the Toraja cultures that contains Geometry Transformation. 4 types of Geometry Transformation are contained on the carving: translation, dilation, and rotation, and reflection. The type of transformation that is commonly used almost in the carving is translation. Many of the carvings had the same types, but it was put in a different place. The position of the carving between the first carving and other carving needs to be measured. Whereas the type of geometry transformation, at least in the carving of traditional Toraja, is the type of rotation transformation. This research also reveals the meaning of the carving of Traditional houses (Tongkonan), namely the symbol of social strata, economy, and there was hope for the Torajan people’s life to be better. They are continuously growing up in togetherness for a better life.
