"BAHAY KUBO"


This painting is a perfect example of a Nipa hut a.k.a. Bahay Kubo,
It's an indigenous native house - constructed out of bamboo tied together, with a thatched roof using nipa/anahaw leaves.
Nipa huts were the native houses of the indigenous people of the Philippines before the Spaniards arrived.
They are still used today, but mostly in the rural area.
I wish i knew who the painter was...unfortunately this was one of my random photos.
Happy weekend!
