Pinagmulan or Roots
Acrylic on Layered Wood
4 x 5 ft
One of my very old works, where I would render the paint like the weaving patterns of my people.
The image is of the first man (Sicalac) and woman (Sicauay) emerging from the mother bamboo tree, which was split by the mystic bird the Manaul.
The rendered colors of the background also form the Philippine flag.
