Today, we feature Mindanao’s viewing stone and culture
This exquisitely crafted knife, known as “Barong”, is a weapon commonly used by Muslim-Filipino ethnolinguistic groups like the Tausugs and Sinama/Yakan. It is displayed alongside a mountain stone that hails from Davao.
Note the lighter color of the stone that’s usually associated from that area.
