An Indigenous Art Exhibit

The Kalinawa Art Foundation has once again staged for the second time an indigenous art exhibit in the province of Ilocos Norte. This time it was participated in by indigenous peoples with an increased number of artworks showcased.

There were big sized paintings, sketches, drawings, abel weaving, backstrap weaving, basketry and other traditional arts. What was striking artwork was the bottle crowns that formed a portrait.
