A centuries-old dance appealing for favors from the Christ Child.
Peculiarly a Cebuano tradition, it began from a humble folk ritual
that now become a yearly colorful extravaganza. In this frenzy of
custom and costume, the artist incorporates the sublime that is
festooned with decorative colors, though in reality the dancing
woman was emblazoned by the artist with throw-away rags, cogon papers
and curtain laces.
