The Philippines.

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

I’m an artist – part of the Philippine media. This is a visit for coverage and it is my first time.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I liked the material (alabaster), the lines in the material and the hair and the face itself. The whole piece is very rich and captivating.

Boston, Massachusetts (USA).
