Default Philippines displays

Here are some of my Philippine weaponry displays.

The first 2 are Moro, and the last one is Kalinga, one of the Igorot tribes in the north. I made all of the displays by hand (and not by foot ). Enjoy . Photo credits: Rsword (maraming salamat )

Battara,
Absolutely beautiful displays. If you would, please post more information and show more pictures of the armour.

Battara,

Isn't that one of those rare Barongs with kamagong hilt with inlaid ivory?
Could you please post a close up for us to admire?

Thank you folks. Been wanting to do this for a while.

Here is a link on Federico's site for the kris in the display:

And here is the link for the barong (yes VVV, it is one of those rare barongs ):

I will post more closeups of the kris (possibly barong if can find them) and the armour in the next couple of days.

Here are closeups of the kris with ivory, silver, and swaasa. I made the scabbard from scratch.

Here are some pictures (front and back) of the Moro armour made of horn and brass plates, and brass chain maille. I have yet to restore it (another 10 year project ).

As far as closeups of the barong are concerned, this is all I have at present. If I can get better closeups I will post them.

Just for good measure, here is a picture of the Kalinga datu brass mounted head axe (with white metal engraved end).

Battara,
Great armour. Thanks for posting more pictures of it. On the back side, is that a stab wound in the lower right hand side? When you do restore this will you make new horn plates to replace the broken ones or will you repair the original ones?

I will both make new plates and restore the broken ones. There are even some missing. I got this armour from Artzi at Timonium a few years ago.

Thumbs up Kalinga hatchet and shield

Ganda! Very impressive Kalinga items. Do you have any pictures you can e-mail? I just purchased a similar shield, but the rattan is missing. How long is the hatchet?

I've noticed quite a few of these "orbs" when photographing my collection too but not being very superstitious always chalked them up as dust particles either in the air or on the camera lens.

I took a copy of the the picture and re balanced the shading, and saw the reflections of all of the orbs in the sheet metal in the right of the picture. There is a lot going on in this picture. Mostly centered around the shield

Bro, I think you got some spirits lingering around your swords, especially on that kalinga headaxe/shield...
I'm bringing an EVP next time
