MANGOD by Uncle Roberto

What is Mangod?

Mangod is the Albayano term for buko or young coconut.

 

Why Mangod?

The term ‘mangod’ was chosen instead of ‘noyog’, the albayano term for niyog to symbolize uncle roberto’s young start in his craftsmanship. The mature niyog shells possess the right qualities needed to produce the crafts uncle roberto creates. Join him in his journey to pursuing his mangod crafts, which is not only about him building himself through creating but also paying tribute to his roots.
