Magkaisa choice: Francisco "Paco" Gorospe


Carabaos by Francisco Paco Gorospe - The carabao is any Filipino farmer’s strong, reliable and uncomplaining companion. It is not a “beast of burden”, as some foreign interlopers tried to make the Filipinos believe, but failed. They may even be in clockwise rotation forming an oval, with a singular bird in contrasting colors. Their eyes are wide open at rest, their horns providing the counterpoint to the diagonal foreheads as they face the viewer. (Carabaos, Oil on Canvas, 90 cm x 120 cm, undated, Signed lower right)
