A Man’s Shrine is a Man’s Shrine.
Across a Chinese school is a wall with a “shrine” of a different kind. It is chaotic and festooned with bits and pieces of found objects with the dominant appearance of bamboo crosses and crayon scribbled messages. I suspect that this is a work of progress with the contrast of fresh Christmas decor against the faded poster of an actor turned senator.
This is Installation Art at its most innocent. No pretense, no forced strokes, no price tag.
The message is simple and clear. “Paghidait” or Peace. Moon, Sun, Star and “Anak.” And Happy Frying Pan.
