Taming the Tikbalang by Lakandiwa Taming the Tikbalang by Lakandiwa
Taming the Tikbalang

Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board
2012

Awaiting the gifts of the Heart
And emboldened to a battle

On to the night
Racing among the stars
Taming the watcher

Now servant and friend"

Of all mythological creatures of the Tagalog people, the Tikbalang is my fave :)

Thank you very much my friend

It is said that the tikbalang flies through dimensions and not just the cosmos

The Tikbalang were said to be giants, and being 6 ft tall I was almost mistaken to be one when I went to a very isolated island community with a population with an average height of 5'3 :)

They later realized I was just as human as they were, then when they heard I had been to the mystic mountain of Banahaw . . . . their perceptions changed again :)

Oh gosh, a while ago I was arguing with a good friend of mine about a digital piece I made (placed it here also: [link]). A man with the head of a horse, we wondered what kind of mythical creature we could link him with. We were thinking of centaurs, but that's just the other way around off course. :) But I believe I finally figured it out now!

Stunning art again :heart:

Greetings Lon

I am glad my work brought illumination to your debate. Although the Tikbalang is a mythical creature endemic to my people, I believe that there is a similar creature in ancient Greek myth and it is called a cellini (if my memory serves me right)
