Kapwa means "fellow human". When we live for the collective, we appreciate the interconnectedness of all beings. Inspired by the tattooing tradition of the Kalinga tribe in the Cordillera region of Luzon, this hand illustrated ornament depicts the pattern for mountains, a community of nipa huts and a rice field. Together this scene symbolizes security, abundance and protection.
