VOCABULARY

Prehistoric art - art created by Filipinos before the coming of the Spaniards and
before written history.

Burial jar - the Manunggul jar was a secondary burial jar, which means that the
jar contained only the bones of the person who had long been buried
and only the bones remain and are kept in a jar for safekeeping.

Bul-ul are god figures carved out of wood, and found in the Cordilleras to
guard the ricefields and rice harvest.

Sarimanok is a mythological figure found among the Maranaos in Mindanao in the


shape of a bird with intricate wings and tail, and holding a fish in its
beak. This is similar to the bird sculptures like the Garuda of Indonesia.

ART ELEMENTS AND PRINCIPLES

Three dimensional sculptures are three dimensional because they have height, width
and depth.

Curvilinear the designs seen in the sarimanok are curvilinear designs in the wings
and tail, which is also seen in their okir motifs, derived from vines and
flowers.

3. Inspired by the sari-manok, ask them to use the different materials they
brought: clay or variety of vegetables and fruits, in carving these into
bird-like shapes. (See samples of carved fruits in the pictures in the
Learning Guide page 119)

4. Allow the students to work by twos or threes so they can share their
materials and they can complete their fruit sculptures quickly as these
would dry up or wilt quickly. Tell them to try to complete their sculpture
in one lesson.

5. Let students exhibit their works in a public place where others students
can view their vegetable and fruit carvings.
