These terraces make way for water from the mountain tops to irrigate the tiered fields and the valley below. Carving a stylized sculpture representation of a human figure in wood, used in rituals associated with the many stages of rice planting, healing, and the resolution of intertribal feuds. Bulul The Tagbanua of Palawan use whimsical sculptures of birds, lizards, turtles, snakes, pigs, and other animals for their rituals, as house decor and, at times, as toys for children. Metal Crafts Metalcraft includes all works or objects created from metal by the process of brass casting and blacksmithing, goldsmithing and silversmithing, or tinsmithing.
Brass casting encompasses works of brass or bronze made by casting and the use of a forge. Blacksmithing is the process of making brass, bronze or iron tools, containers, weapons, and other functional or nonfunctional items, using the forge and anvil. Before the coming of the Spaniards, the Filipinos already made small brass canons mounted on a swivel called the lantaka. The Cordillera groups, such as the Ifugao and the Kalinga, have also developed a formidable arsenal under conditions of tribal warfare. Their earliest weapons were bamboo shields, lances, and stakes planted on the grassy trails, while bows and arrows were rarely used. They later fashioned iron weapons like spears, bolos, and head axes. BONTOC, IFUGAO, AND KALINGA:
