PhotoHunt: COLORFUL



Tucked in one of the smaller rooms of the Museo De Oro is a collection of ceremonial garb donned by our indigenous lumad communities in the southern part of the Philippines. This is a most precious collection considering that 21st century life is encroaching into their way of life fast and unrelenting.

  4. When I see works of art like this, it makes me sad to think that one day they will be lost in the name of progress.

  5. Ah, the march of progress goes on, trampling the colorful flowers and traditions in its wake. I hope that some of them are being preserved in real life and not just in museums. That is a wonderful textile, by the way.

  6. Beautiful and, yes, so sad that the modern world is eating away at the cultures or the world's indigenous peoples.

  8. It wasn't til I was an adult did I realize that my attraction for plaids and certain colorful plaids was a "heritage" gene. I'm looking forward to exploring your blog further.

    Su-sieee! Mac
