I've been doing some research on tribes of the Philippines as i wanted to do a series of prints, i haven't made any prints yet but i have done a little drawing.  I really wanted to go to the Banaue rice terraces when we were in the Philippines but we were kind of in the middle of the country and the Cordillera region where the terraces are situated is way up north,  we got to see Mayon Volcano which was pretty awesome but next time i'm gonna go here   \/

The people that have cultivated and looked after these terraces for 2000 years are the Ifugao and their culture revolves around the planting and harvesting of the rice.  Their clothes are similarly coloured to those of the sami people that i was researching before although they wear a bit more red.
