These are representations of mythical creatures in Mëranaw (Maranao) folklore – the borak (middle ground) and the sarimanok (foreground). The borak is a winged horse with the countenance of man; the sarimanok is a bird of colourful plume with a bird in its beak.

This is the embodiment of Architecture, part of the work Siyam na Diwata ng Sining (Nine Muses of the Arts) by Napoleon Abueva. The work stands at the grounds of Rizal Hall in UP Diliman. When the hall was gutted by fire, the sculpture survived, fortunately.
