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. The materials that you will need are: 1. oil pastel 2. Colored paper or colored magazine 3.
