Rice in the Seven Arts

Rice in the Seven Arts brings together in one volume the previously unexplored and primordial role of rice on the seven arts: dance, music, theater arts, motion pictures, architecture, visual arts, and literature - in the context of the Philippines.  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 (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.
