The Bagodo, The New People

The Bagodo, The New People
Jacynth Atienza, Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines

I made this sketch entitled “The Bagobo, The New People.” This is one of the many tribes of my country in the Philippines named, Bagobo. Bago meaning “new”, and obo meaning “growth.” The tribes of Mindanao are well-known for weaving, as seen as what the girl wears in the sketch. It takes so much patience, craftmanship, and time. I could reflect this to my personal experience this quarantine that growth is not a one-night event. It takes time and patience to one’s self.
