The Hunt for Experience: Philippine National Museum


Our weekend quest for anything artsy brought us to Manila. It has been a long time and most of us needed the creative inspiration we can get. We thought it is just necessary to have some culture going into our bloodstream again. So we opted to visit our beloved National Museum. The trip going there was a breeze. I super love what they did in Manila now. The traffic flow is fantastic and far from traumatizing like how I remembered it when I was in college. This reminds me, there is hope.



Now that I’ve had my fair share of making my own art, I had a different view of the pieces I once seen way back. It is nice to appreciate the works of our greatest Filipino masters in a deeper perspective, I thought. Each stroke has a story to tell, a lesson to teach and an experience to imbibe. It felt really amazing to experience it all over again. It definitely gave a fresh breathe of inspiration to keep making my own art.

  3. Ang creepy ng dating sa akin ng ikalawang larawan.
    Yung ikatlo naman ay nakakakilabot na malungkot.

    Matagal na rin noong una at huli kong nabisita ang National Museum.
    Marami na bang bago? :)

    1. i agree. i love how they did the eyes in their sculptures back then. its as if they have no souls but full of stories to tell. its kind of majestic for me. its true that the 3rd photo brings sadness to its audience.
      dapat mag visit ka soon. madami ng magagandang exhibits that you can check out.
