(SPOT.ph) Going up to the Cordilleras means an introduction to a carved human figure with a round head sitting down with knees close to the chin. This is the bulul, a sculpture believed to represent our ancestors, considered guardians of rice crops by the Ifugao. This figure of ancient animism has survived centuries of colonization, and in an effort to reacquaint younger generations with its significance, Ayala Museum is hosting a two-part online lecture titled From Pre-Colonial Survivor to Pop Culture Icon: The Changing Face of the Ifugao Bulul. Delivered by renowned theater director-playwright Floy Quintos, the one-hour talk is happening via Zoom on March 13 and March 20, at 4 p.m. Rates per session is at P400, but you can book both lectures for P675.
