Lungkot Sa Likod Ng Pahiyas
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Translation (loosely): SORROW BEHIND THE FESTIVE WREATHS
During the Pahiyas Festival in the town of Lukban, Quezon Province in the Philippines, the town folk adorn their houses with colorful wreaths and chandeliers called kipings (colorful and edible rice wafers) to celebrate the harvest and honor the patron saint of farmers San Isidro Labrador.
In the face of the elaborate and sometimes costly celebration of bounty, many people in the Philippines are still mired in poverty and live in hand-to-mouth existence. There is cause for celebration and yet behind the merriment there is also cause for sadness for the people who have little to eat.
