Siningkwela Episode 2- Sarimanok Reminder Notepad
Have you heard about the SARIMANOK? In this lesson, we'd like to take you to Mindanao and share legend of a mythical creature. The SARIMANOK is an omnipresent symbol of our Maranao Brothers and sisters in the Philippines. It is a fowl with colorful wings and feathered tail, holding a fish on its beak or talons. The head is profusely decorated with scroll, leaf, and spiral motifs. It is said to be a symbol of good fortune. The Sarimanok is derived from a totem bird of the Maranao people, called Itotoro. According to the Maranao people, the Itotoro is a medium to the spirit world via its unseen twin spirit bird called Inikadowa. According to the later Islamic legend, Muhammad found a rooster in the first of the seven heavens. The bird was so large its crest touched the second heaven. Its crow roused every living creature except man. Judgement day would come once this celestial rooster ceased to crow. So let's get acquainted with the SARIMANOK through this special art tutorial that we present together with the Philippine Embassy in Singapore in celebration of the National Heritage Month 2020.

Classical Greece had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire and on the foundations of Western civilization. Much of modern Western politics, artistic thought (architecture, sculpture), scientific thought, theatre, literature and philosophy derives from this period of Greek history. In the context of the art, architecture, and culture of Ancient Greece, the Classical period corresponds to most of the 5th and 4th centuries BC (the most common dates being the fall of the last Athenian tyrant in 510 BC and the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC).

Medieval Art: Marvels of Byzantium | Easy Icon paper mossaic | Siningkwela Episode 8
In this episode of Siningkwela were giving you a glimpse to Medieval Art through making an Icon mosaic. Let’s go back in time and learn some fun facts about this period and travel to modern day Constantinople (Istanbul) to share the glory and legacy of the this important epoch in history. The medieval art of the Western world covers a vast scope of time and place, over 1000 years of art in Europe, and at times the Middle East and North Africa. It includes major art movements and periods, national and regional art, genres, revivals, the artists' crafts, and the artists themselves. The medieval period of art history spans from the fall of the Roman Empire in 300 AD to the beginning of the Renaissance in 1400 AD. The Byzantine Empire came to prominence. It is also known as the Eastern Roman Empire and Byzantinium and its empire’s capital is Constantinople which is now we call, Istanbul. This Empire has brought us amazing art forms. Byzantine art (4th - 15th century CE) is generally characterised by a move away from the naturalism of the Classical tradition towards the more abstract and universal, there is a definite preference for two-dimensional representations, and those artworks which contain a religious message predominate.
