Colorful and creatively designed masks hangin’ around the walls of Lucban.

2. Mannequins and Dummies
The pinoy version of mannequin. A scarecrow like farmer but this is a friendly one. A welcome dummy that gives smile to a lot of visitors.
Vegetables are not only used in cooking, but in decorations also. Green, Red and Yellow. I guess this is where the Power Rangers got their color coding.
The evolution of Tomatoes…
Who says pumpkins are only for halloween? Well Pahiyas Festival got it and this house Rocks! \m/
Cherry and Bull’s Eye! Correct me if I’m wrong, but those thing that frames the subject is called Palusot. The towns local version of Pilipit.
Pabitin – One of the oldskool game and tradition that symbolizes fiesta here in the Philippines. Grab ’em all \m/

A dragon-like spiral decor made of Banig. This one Rocks! \m/
8. Ropes and Kiping
What grows in the ropes are flowers without thorns. Nice combos here!
Rose-shaped Kiping. Melts in your mouth not in your hand!
I’m sure your wonderin’ what the heck is Kiping that I’m saying. Kiping is Lucban’s unique popular art. A thin paper-like leaves made of rice that comes with different colors. Can I eat this one? Hell Yeah! I’ve already eat one of those and it’s good! \m/
