Bul-ul / Bulul or Bul-ol / Bulol --- "... is an Ifugao anthropomorphic carving that symbolizes an Ifugao rice god or guardian spirits. It also signifies fertility and is sometimes believed to house spirits of ancestors." . Source: http://thefinestwriter.com/bulul.htm --- "Bulul are very important in Ifugao society, where rice is the staple crop, and they are frequently placed in rice fields and granaries as guardians. Before taking up their function as guardians, the sculptures are ritually consecrated by coating the figure with pig or chicken blood, which can leave them with a darkened and mottled patina." .

Acts of Disappearance: “Echoes” by Daniel Evangelista and Crystal Angela Tranquilino In the two-artist show, Echoes, Daniel Evangelista and Crystal Angela Tranquilino grapple with objects, people, and situations that are on the verge of disappearance or, if still very much around, carry within them the reverberations of memory, of time long gone. For them, everything is subjected to time’s ravishing hands and art becomes the arresting force with its act of reclamation and commemoration... Tranquilino’s approach is through still life, evoked by antiques that have deep roots in our history, heritage, and culture—from bulul to horses affixed on Sarao jeepneys to sarimanok. These objects, while seen in the context of the past, are actually physically assertive, seeming to bear with pride their historical associations. In the vernacular space, it is they that have integrity while the rest of the objects surrounding them are covered with paint drips (a signature of Tranquilino’s works) that “represent modern influence, colonialism, and the changes our country has undergone.” In Echoes, both Evangelista and Tranquilino show how nothing in the world is solid since time is a mutable element that permeates every molecule of life. While some of the things we value may seem to have disappeared, they have merely taken on new incarnations, weaving through the grand fabric of the ordinary, the everyday, ending up in the skin and bone of canvas and frame. –Carlo Daoana (snippet of full write-up)

my mini #bulul made from wooden block of our #windchimes 🙂 (swipe left for the finished bulul figure) posed with #25centavos for scale reference. A Bulul, also known as tinagtaggu, is a carved wooden figure used to guard the rice crop by the Ifugao (and their sub-tribe Kalanguya) peoples of northern Luzon. The sculptures are highly stylized representations of ancestors, and are thought to gain power from the presence of the ancestral spirit. #wikifact #woodcraft #woodcarving #anito #tinagtaggu #ifugao #artph #pinoymade #minature #diy #woodfigure #folkart #siningph #ukit

Still unable to write or verbalize completely my experience at the Ifugao Vision Quest last week so I reflected on the people we met, the gifts we were given, and the visions and messages recieved as I sat to do a mandala meditation yesterday and this morning. The first image drawn in this mandala was the carabao skull inspired and modelled after the carsbao sticker by Guinto Seeds and co... (proper links and credits to follow when my inet is better) a group of Fil-Ams who have been documenting Mamerto Lagitan's work in the US and followed him to the Philippines so the could reconnect to their own roots around the PH as well. They are producing a documentary about their journey which will have valuable i sights for so many of us in the diaspora struggling with the question, what does it mean to be Filipino? Please support their work at this crowd-funding link: http://igg.me/at/ifugao #carabao #kalabao #ifugao #mandala #mandalameditation #handdrawn #bulul #linglingo #filipino #filipina #philippines #sacredart #returntoroots #rememberwhoyouare

Some of the Bulul (Ifugao Rice Guardians) at Mamerto Lagitan's home. Such an honour to be watched over by three mumbaki's as we hiked up the mountain and solo-camped for 2 nights in honour of connection to our ancestors (whether we have DNA roots with the Ifugao or not), the Diwata, and the spirits of nature. We all experienced powerful visions and messages and can't wait for the next journey.

#gastondamag - Phantom of inspiration - #galerie_maia_muller 19, rue Chapon 3eme arr. On retrouve la thématique ethnologique personnelle de Gaston mais dans un geste pictural. Quelques sculptures de bois accompagnent les toiles. Dans une pléthorique saison artistique philippine à Paris j’avais présenté l’une de ses installations, un bulul de cire qui fondait sous la chaleur d’une lampe électrique dans une cage de verre! Jusqu’à ce soir 18h. #art #philippines #ifugao #bulul #sculpture #installationart

Remember my piece from Sept 2017? I didn’t know this then but the piece bears strong resemblance to what I saw on my recent trip when I discovered the ancient wood carvings called Bulul. . . A Bulul is a carved wooden figure used to guard the rice crop by the Ifugao (and their sub-tribe Kalanguya) peoples of northern Luzon, Philippines. The sculptures are stylized representations of ancestors, and are thought to gain power from the presence of the ancestral spirit. The Ifugao are particularly noted for their skill in carving bululs. . Bul-uls are used in ceremonies associated with rice production and with healing. Creation of a bul-ul involves alwen bul-ul ritual by a priest to ensure that the statue gains power. The bul-ul is treated with care and respect to avoid the risk of the spirits of the ancestors bringing sickness. The figures are placed together with the rice in the house or granaries to bring a plentiful harvest. Bul-ul is important to Ixfugaos because they believe they can protect and multiply the rice and help make the harvest abundant. . Male and female Bulul statues are often found together, with sex-related symbols such as the mortar for the female and pestle for the male. Male bulul may sometimes be depicted with loincloth, and females with tapis (wrap skirts), earrings and anklets. Although the form varies, the bulul is commonly represented as seated on the ground, with arms crossed over his upraised knees. The bulul has a simplified form, and is traditionally carved from narra or ipil wood. The bulul is touched by hands dipped in blood of a chicken or pig in ritual called tunod during the rice planting season. Over time the blood imparts a dark color to the figures, overlaid with a patina of grease from food offerings. Bululs are handed down to the first child of a family. . #Bulul #ancient #ifugao #kalanguya #tribe #luzon #philippines #history #ricegod #ancestors #woodensculpture #historical #ancestralspirits #carving #ritual #tribal #primitivism #ancientart #contemporaryart #lamorena
