El guerrero pintado de butuan

The Painted warrior of Butuan

___________________________________

This is my concept of a Pintado Warrior of Butuan, you probably find the tattoo pattern odd,
the tattoo Pattern is inspired by one the early Spanish account description of a Cebuano Tattoo which Pigafetta describe as Fiery or wavy pattern tattoo
as he mentioned in his journal when Magellan and his crew visited the island of Cebu. mixing it with the generic tattoo design which you can find it
on one of the Bisaya illustration in the 1500s Boxer manuscript and Alcina’s depiction of a Bisaya tattooed warrior which they described as Bold line and Zigzag pattern.

The Chest tattoo is a Sampaguita design tattoo (is not actually a sun tattoo, its actually a flower tattoo which is very similar to the Bornean Tattoo)

The Sword is an Ilonggo blade which is the “Ginunting” the hilt design which mimics a Beast head is inspired by one of the Ginunting images which you can find it on “Filipino History & weapon” facebook page,

Dagway sa katiguwangan Bisaya

Dagway sa Katigulangan Bisaya
(The Face of feudal Visayan)

The Face tattoo is only restricted for those Elite Warriors of Feudal Visayas, according to Book Barangay sixteenth-century philippine culture and society by William Henry Scott, ‘Bangut’ is what they called the face-tattoo, other Visayan language probably? had a different term for the face-tattoo, the design which mimics a crocodiles jaw is called ‘langi’ it also mentioned about a beak design, In Pigafettas journal he mentioned that Rajah Humanbon of Cebu had a flame-like design tattoo on his face.

“The Red head-gear or Pudong/Purong is what they called “Magalong”, it signifies the most valiant warrior in Feudal Visayas.”

The story of The Chocolate hills of Bohol written in Badlit / Bisaya Baybayin

Many years ago, at the foot of Happy Mountain,
there lived a wealthy couple who had an only daughter.
The daughter was good-looking, but she was arrogant,
mean, and lazy. She was called Amada. The couple had a
neighbor, a wise woman and mother of twins. The twins
were called Ruben and Teresa. They were kind to
everyone, and they grew to love God’s creatures around
them. Everyday they knelt and bowed their heads to pray.

One bright morning Amada, Ruben, and Teresa were
playing in Amada’s garden when an old woman came by
and begged for alms. Ruben and Teresa dug into their
pockets but did not find anything. So Teresa took off her
pearl necklace and gave it to the beggar. Amada did not
like the idea. She tried to grab the necklace. She threw
stones and splashed water at the beggar. However, the
beggar did not let go of the pearls.

Instead, she shouted angrily, “You are unkind and
rude. I’ll take you somewhere to teach you good
manners. On the other hand, the kind children will be
rewarded.” The woman took Amada away. Ruben and
Teresa went to Amada’s parents and told them what had
happened.
Although Amada lived with the old woman, who turned
out to be a fairy, she still did not change her ways. She
slung sticks at the fairy and did other mean things. The
fairy promised to give Teresa’s pearls to Amada if she
would become good.

One night Ruben heard a call. He thought it was
Amada. So he went out with Teresa and headed towards
where the voice seemed to have come from. They walked
and walked until they reached the house of a giant. The
giant was happy to see them. He thought his supper was
assured that night. The giant’s wife begged him not to eat
the two children. The stars began to fall. Little brown
soldiers came in line and fought the giant. When the fight
was over, Amada had become a changed girl. She became
very kind. She was also happy to be with Teresa and
Ruben again.

The brown soldiers ran away with the children until they
reached home safely. The pearls that Amada received from
the fairy were scattered into the fields as a symbol of
kindness and humility. They became hard chocolate drops
and grew into chocolate hills. Today they are the famous
Chocolate Hills of Carmen, Batuan, and Borja in Bohol.
