"Philippine Skyland" Painting

philippine skyland

Jersey Iggy's heart did a somersault when she saw the Philippines' gift to the United Nations: a painting by a Filipino artist who signed it as "M. Baldemor," whom she assumes is Manuel Baldemor, world-reknowned for his paintings that have appeared on UNICEF greeting cards.

The painting is called "Philippine Skyland" which depicts tribal life in the northern highlands: Miss Iggy's native home! The verdant background is unmistakably the famous Banaue Rice Terraces (A UNESCO World Heritage Site). Suddenly, Miss Iggy felt homesick, yet proud at the same time that her home region is there for all the world to admire.

This and other interesting gifts by the Member States can be seen inside the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
