Would you believe that this is a coconut grater? Well it is!

I saw this piece at the National Museum. Mindanao Muslim art is so nice.  Very minimal trace of western influence as Spain was not able to control this part of the Philippines wholly. Thus, they were able to more or less maintain their culture.

I sometimes wonder what it would be like if the Philippines wasn’t colonized.
