Tamaraw in the Green by Lakandiwa Tamaraw in the Green by Lakandiwa
Tamaraw in the Green

"Seeking the great bull
In the verdant growth a
Along the rolling ranges
Awaken to a rustling
And find the watcher amidst the green"

2011

Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board

*The Tamaraw is the largest land animal in the Philippines, which is a cousin of the water buffalo. Although very elusive, they are highly endangered.

The Tamaraw is a very fierce creature, and that is why it was chosen as the mascot of the Far Eastern University.

Thank you Stephanie

The floral motif is know as "ukkil" among the Tausug people and "okir" the Maranao people in my country . . . it took me years to master this, without referring to any samples . . . and with this work as my completely "ukkil" drawn piece

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then),

Hi Thea

I am very proud of this work, as it was the one that truly tested my patience . . . since it is my only 100% symmetrical floral work, making it also 100% following the principles of the 'ukkil' motif I used for this piece

'Ukkil' is the floral motif used by the Tausug people of my county, to whom I have been adopted

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then),

Aside from putting one straight line in the center with a pencil, I try the best to make it as symmetrical as possible . . . however if you inspect it closely there are many mistakes :)

Actually baroque is quite an apt term . . . as this has been used to describe the intricate designs of old Philippine art :)

The Tamaraw is a very beautiful beast, but very hard to find in the forests . . . hence this image

I will be going up again to the mountains of Mindoro this April to observe the Tamaraw in the wild. This work was inspired by my climb last year
