Mandala ng Kalayaan, Kapayapaan at Katarungan by Lakandiwa Mandala ng Kalayaan, Kapayapaan at Katarungan by Lakandiwa
Mandala ng Kapayapaan, Kalayaan, Katarungan
(Mandala of Peace, Freedom and Justice)

2012
Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board

“Sa iyo Bathala
Kami’y nanawag

Sigaw n gamin labi
Kapayapaan . . .
Kalayaan . . .
Katarungan . . .

Ngunit sa pagsilip
Sa loob nga aming sarili

Mahahanap naming
Ang susi sa
Kapayapaan, kalayaan at katarungan

Sa pusong nagmamahal”

“To you Creator
We cry

Our lips shout
Peace . . .
Freedom . . .
Justice . . .

Yet when we peer
Into ourselves

We find within
The keys to
Peace, freedom and justice

In a heart of love”

* In my studies of the ancient Tagalog script of the Baybayin, I have discovered the beauty in it calligraphic use. I took the time to study the aesthetics of Islamic calligraphy, then I applied it to the Tagalog script called the Baybayin. I am however using the Lopez variation to the script to allow me more leeway in the expressions of the words.

I am also presently doing some historical research on my hypothesis that the Baybayin was actually written in a calligraphic style, at least 100 years before the Spanish colonization of the Philippines.

Hi! Do you mind if I use this for a song I'm posting on bandcamp? I'm not a commercial artist, it would just be a thumbnail on some of the 100,000,000's of random songs on the internet.
