Philippine Classic Parol.

By Carlkuntze
Manila, Philippines.

These Christmas Parols (Christmas Lanterns) appear all around the city during
the two week festive season. Made of Japanese paper stretched over bamboo
frames, their illumination is constituted by either low wattage incandescent bulbs, or where their is no electricity, candles. It is one of colonial Spain's legacy. Early classic designs were stellar or floral. Today, they encompass several imaginative themes. The star might have been borrowed from Aztec
shiipwrights brought to The Philippines to repair ships during The Galleon Trade.
