The Nayong Pilipino Foundation’s (NPF) collection of more than 3,000 artifacts documenting the history and culture of the Philippines will be showcased online as part of the Nayong Pilipino Foundation’s Virtual Museum Project.
This year, the project will consist of six digital exhibitions that will go beyond the standard flat images and short captions obtained through multimedia outputs, such as videos and three-dimensional images.
The first virtual exhibition of the year is called “Tansô”. It aims to show how brass became widely used in tools, ornaments, decorations, vessels and utilitarian objects in the Philippines, and how the traditions of casting and forging this metal developed highly technical processes and produces the most complex parts or objects. .
The virtual exhibition will run from April 4-17 on NPF’s Instagram accounts (@AtingNayon and @nayongpilipino.museo) and NPF’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/nayongpilipinoofficial).
NPF intends to use these online platforms to engage audiences and start critical dialogues about Philippine history, while the agency looks forward to showcasing them in the proposed Culture Park and Creative Center in Parañaque City. .
The cultural park will include a museum that will house the permanent collection of artifacts from the various indigenous peoples of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The NPF collection is diverse and varied, ranging from intricate beaded jewelry to striking weapons for hunting and warfare to ritual artifacts. It also includes musical instruments, vessels, grave goods and textiles.
