Just recently, a Fine Arts student from the University of the Philippines, Baguio City went viral on social media because of the photos of his miniature “barong-barong”. The “barong-barong” is a traditional small house in the Philippines which is made up mostly of scrap wood and GI sheets. Lianne Tamares posted the photos on her Twitter account first. After a while, she also posted her work on Facebook. She shared that “barong-barong” is a project in her Materials class.

The work of Tamares is remarkably admirable. She was able to capture the exact appearance of the “barong-barong” where the poor residents of the Philippines dwell. Looking closely, you will notice how she was able to add every little detail of what can normally be seen on these kinds of houses like used tires on the roofings, uneven cut of woods and even the hanging clothes outside the window. Aside from these details, it’s very noticeable that even the roofings used are worn-out just like in the typical houses in slum areas.

Lianne adds that she was able to finish her projects in two weeks. It’s a beautiful work of art but there’s a deeper meaning that the images are conveying; the sad plight of the poor residents of the country. The post had also been shared at the Facebook page of Philippine Star. It has already gotten aroung 41K reactions and 8K shares from the netizens who were all praises for the work of Tamares. {source}
