The Bakunawa Picture

The Bakunawa/The Sea Serpent

The Bakunawa, also known as Bakonawa, Baconaua, or Bakonaua, is a deity in Philippine mythology that is often represented as a gigantic sea serpent. It is believed to be the god of the underworld and is often considered to be the cause of eclipses.

It appears as a giant sea serpent with a mouth the size of a lake, a red tongue, whiskers, gills, small wires at its sides, and two sets of wings, one is large and ash-gray while the other is small and is found further down its body.

This was part of my first collection for my graduation fashion show last 2008.I entitled it "Monsters Beneath My Bed" because I took the inspirations from my personal experiences and fears as a young designer on whether or not I would make it on the industry
Thanks to my kumareng Anne for making such a wonderful dragon graphic!

This collection would not have been a success without my faith on the Above,my wonderful family, my mentors and my friends. Thank you all for the support
