TheManunggul Jar excavated in Palawan isevidence of the high artistic level whichthe art attained in an ancient times. Thislarge burial jar has a cover which featurestow men rowing a boat, suggesting thebelief of the early Filipinos in an afterlifethat one reaches after crossing a mythicalbody of water. Around its body is anincised geometric pattern of lines and dots.Extant examples of early Philippinepottery show a wide variety of shapes anddecorative techniques, such an incision,stippling, openwork and impression byrope and mat.

  20. 20. WoodCarving s
  21. 21. • Many parts of the country have lively woodcarving traditions. The Cordillera groups carve anito figures called bulol which double as ancestral spirits and granary gods. They are often found in pairs to signify the value of fertility. Human and animal motifs are also integrated into parts of houses such as door posts, as well as household objects such as bowls, forks and spoons.
  22. 22. In Southern Philippines, the Maranao and the Tausog of Mindanaoare known for their okir-a-datu, ornate curvilinear designs andmotifs applied to woodcarving. The principal okir designs arethe sarimanok, the naga and the pako rabong.• The sarimanok carved in wood, simply varnished or painted in many colors (it is also executed in brass), is the stylized design of a bird holding a fish in its beak or standing on a base in the shape of fish. While its meaning derives from epics and myths, it also alludes to Lake Lanao with its fertile waters.
  23. 23. • The naga has the form of an elaborate mythical serpent with a vigorous S- curve and numerous curvilinear motifs to suggest its scales.• The pako rabong is a stylized growing fern with a broad base gracefully tapering upwards.
  24. 24. BASKETRY• Other arts that use weaving techniques are basketry, as well as the making of hats and fans. The Cordilleras are rich in baskets for all purposes, reflecting occupational needs related to rice planting on the mountain terraces, hunting in the forests and fishing in the streams.
  25. 25. Their backpack or pasiking forinstance, is not only an exampleof good design but is alsostructured to support the humanframe. Aside from baskets andcontainers related to hunting andagricultural activities, there arealso many kinds of bamboo fishtraps with shapes and sizes tosuit the different species of fishfound in the rivers.

This tradition spills over into theadjacent Ilocos provinces which takepride in their sturdy abel weave.
  32. 32. In Mindanao, theT’boli of Cotabatoweave abaca clothcalled t’nalak ina difficult tie-dyeprocess. Thiscloth has a largerepertoire ofmotifs, such asthe g’mayaw bird, whose rhythmscreate the feelingof flapping wings;the frog whichsignifies fertility;and the dancingman which callsfor rain. Thesemotifs attest tothe T’boli’s deep-seated sense ofthe harmony ofman and nature.
  33. 33. Weaving techniques are also used in the exquisite mats with vivid colorsand intricate geometric designs woven by the women of Sulu, particularlyfrom the islands of Laminusa and Siasi. In the Visayas, Samar and Leyteare known for their colorful mats with bird and flower designs. The largemats meant for family use imply strong familial values.
