Using the Maria Clara image, this artwork is a collaboration with a poet named Maffie De Paz. I put up an only poetry writing contest in facebook and her poem won. The poem is about the quest to find the real meaning of beauty, and a delicate artwork is made, inspired by the winning poem that is handwritten on the artwork in a Dr. Jose Rizal griffonage fashion. This is also to show the almost-lost modesty of the olden-day Filipina. An ode to the old days, a reminder to the present.
