These pieces were inspired by the Dinagyang Festival, with its usage of vibrant color and the overall intricate festiveness of the masks and costumes of the event. Each piece represent a certain ‘world’. Designated and representing ‘Langit’, the blue Dinagyang ‘warrior’ holds bird-like features. The dominant color is blue, which represents air, flight, horizons, and dreams, according to the artist. ‘Lupa’ on the other hand, has dragon-like features reminiscent of the Asian interpretation of the dragon, or Buwaya. The dominant colors are red and yellow, representing fire, earth, light, and passion. Both pieces combined explore the duality of Heaven and Earth, Good and Evil, Calm and Chaos. Cabral also meant these works to show how we, as human beings, merge the two in one for the celebration of faith, trade and worship.
