aliwan 2009 Limbonan Float (22/25)

LIMBONAN FLOAT (Parang, Maguindanao)
Also from Parang, Maguindanao is the float called the Limbonan.  This is a fully decorated room where a Maguindanaoan bride stays while waiting for her wedding day to relax and beautify herself.  Brassware, betel boxes, and trays indicate the wealthy status of the bride’s family.  Outside, her relatives play music while dancers perform to entertain her family.  An unta, whose head resembles a deer moves to the rhythm of the drums.
