     At the center of the Oblation Plaza of the University of the Philippines Diliman this Christmas season, wrapped around the Oblation and with miniatures hanging on bamboo-like stilts (see photo and video below) is a multi-dimensional art installation depicting the “budyong” by Toym Imao. 

     The “budyong” is the pre-colonial bugle made of a conch shell used by the original inhabitants of these islands to call out to the entire community. 

     Here it is:
