TALA- In Filipino mythology, Tala is the goddess of the stars. She is known to help travelers, showing them the way as a bright night star. Tala embodies clarity and guidance.
Her origins and story vary by region. To many, Tala is the demi-goddess daughter of Bathala, and the sister of Mayari (goddess of the moon) and Hanan (goddess of the morning). She is known to have been instrumental in the creation of constellations. For Kapampangans, Tálâ is known as the great bright night star, as well as the one who introduced wet-rice culture in Pampanga.
Materials: solid brass, stainless steel posts
Diyosa is the Tagalog word for goddess. The ancient gods and goddesses of Greek and Roman Mythology have been widely celebrated and honored by people around the world. Philippine Mythology is also overflowing with ancient deities - representing everything from nature, to love, strength, beauty and wisdom. Why not celebrate them too? Honouring my Filipino heritage has always been important to me, especially through my work. The rich history of gods and goddesses of the Philippines date back to pre-colonial times, yet much of this history is slowly being erased. My wish for this collection is to pay homage to my cultural roots and share the magic of the gods and goddesses of my ancestors.
