Painting - Colored Ink On Paper
This is the third art piece I created using the style called pointillism, a method of painting/drawing in which tiny dots are applied in patterns to form an image.
This art piece shows a carabao with an egret resting on its back.
Carabao is a swamp type domestic water buffalo found in the Philippines, where it is considered the national animal. It is also considered a symbol of Guam. According to Wikipedia, "In the early 1960s, carabao races were a popular sport in the island, especially during fiestas. Today, carabaos are a part of the popular culture. They are often brought to carnivals or other festivities, and are used as a popular ride for children."
Carabaos are used for farming and for pulling carts in rural villages in the Philippines. They are also a good source of meat, milk, and hide. Carabao hide was once used extensively to create a variety of products, which include the armor of pre-colonial Filipino warriors.
I applied my very last dot on this art piece on the 20th of August 2016.
