Rice in the Seven Arts is the newest book of the Asia Rice Foundation (ARF).  It brings together in one volume the previously unexplored and primordial role of rice on the seven arts of the Philippines: dance, music, theater arts, motion pictures, architecture, visual arts, and literature.  From seeding to planting, protecting the grain-bearing plants from preying birds, harvesting and storing the grains, rice is presented as a social, familial and community animator,.  The golden grain, husked or unhusked, is likewise presented in its various uses in Philippine culture and the arts: from adornment (pf abodes and human bodies) to rice wine for special occasions.

Among the contributors are renowned artists and leading cultural icons of the Philippines.

The 120-page book contains beautiful and rare photos and bids as a welcome addition to the limited literature on the subject.
