In the Philippines, the martial arts have always been tied to the occult and supernatural. To the mandirigmas, hilots and albularyos this may be in a form of written prayer known as an orasyon. The orasyon is usually scribed on a piece of paper, cloth or written directly on the skin while being whispered. They are used for countering evil spirits or preventing physical harm.
We’ve always been fortunate to work with extremely talented artists and we collaborated with Cebu’s best calligraffiti artist, Janot, to produce this wearable art piece.
