Limbag: Early Impressions of the Philippines

Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On October - 14 - 2010


Limbag: Early Impressions of the Philippines, a traveling exhibit from the Metropolitan Museum of Manila which features images and maps of colonial Philippines produced from the 1700s to the 1900s, is doing the rounds at the various SM Malls. For the writer interested in getting the details of costume and setting right, or anyone interested in Philippine history, seeing visual renderings from the late Spanish-early American periods can be very useful. I caught the exhibit at Megamall, but it’s moved on to the Block, SM City North Edsa, where it will remain until the end of October. Here are a few pictures, and  you can see the rest of the images I took on the Flickr stream- sorry that it wasn’t possible to get shots without a certain amount of reflection.
