Sarimanok by Lakandiwa Sarimanok by Lakandiwa
Sarimanok

Pen & Ink

The sarimanok is a mythical rooster found in many stories among the tribes of the island of Mindanao. It too is commonly depicted in the arts and crafts of the region.

This rainbow plumed bird has a multitude of stories about it that there is no one “true story”. In one case, it is the messenger of the gods, sent to punish a haughty princes who was turned into a fish. In another tale, a great warrior turns himself into the sarimanok, and flies off to save his bride. And in a story, the sarimanok was either king of the birds or just lord of all fowl.

Here the sarimanok’s illustration is influenced by the okir style of carving of the Maranao.

Maraming salamat

Sa totoo lang, itong likha ay nagawa ko noong 1997 pa. Pero ako'y naglilikha ng ganitong kabusising bagay mula bata pa ako . . . at hindi ang "talent" ang problema, kundi ang aking kailangan malagpasan ang aking pagkainipin para makatapos ng ganitong trabaho.

Ngayon, pagkatapos ng halos 40 taong ng pagawa ng mga madetalyeng sining, masasabi ko na ma'control' ko ang aking inip :)

Thanks Maria

The technique of illustrating incorporates the Moro (Philippine Islamic groups) floral art style called 'ukil' (Tausug) or 'okir' (Maranao), whom I lived with for a while and mastered the technique
