NATIONAL BOOK AWARD TROPHY

I'm crazed at the moment. I'm having painters and movers invade the house for the next four weeks and I have to pack so much stuff to move to storage. But what can be interesting is discovering what's been covered under dust in dim corners of the place. And I found this! My Philippine National Book Award trophy for my first poetry book, BEYOND LIFE SENTENCES! The sculpture was created by Philippine National Artist _____ (name to come when my memory is jiggered):




As for Barbie in indigenous-ish clothing? That was for a post-colonial project I did years ago. I believe some part of the U.S. military bases in the Philippines, when turned into businesses and factories, included Mattel....well, never mind that for now...
