This is the first time that the Paulina Constancia Museum of Naïve art (MoNA) is joining the Gabii sa Kabilin (GSK) or Heritage Night.
And the first assignment for participating heritage sites is to create an individual storyline based on a given theme. This year’s GSK theme is “Forging Peoples”
And below is MoNA’s Individual storyline.
“Civilizations Flourish by Forging Ecological and Cultural Diversity”
Maíz- Mais, Cacao-Kakaw, Piña-Pinya, Plátano-Saging, Mango- Manga, Hibiscus-Gumamela, Fiesta-Pista, Casamiento-Kasal, Procesión-Prosesyon, Virgen María –Birhen Maria, Cochero-Kutsero, Guitarra-Gitara, Chinelas-Tsinelas, Jeepney-Dyipni, , Salvavidas-Salbabida, Feria-Perya, Escuela- Eskwelahan, Tiangue- Tiangi
These are ecological and cultural imports from China, India, Mexico, Spain and the United States of America. They have been ingrained and assimilated in our environment and way of life for centuries that they are now part of who we are, what we eat, what we do and how we live. During your visit to the Paulina Constancia Museum of Naïve Art [MoNA] at West Gorordo Hotel, you will have the chance to see the artworks of Paulina Constancia that depict these symbols, rituals, traditions and celebrations that were forged through ecological and cultural exchange with our colonizers and trading partners.
