Kampilan ni Makabo (corrected)

After a few days, I found out that I've made an error in the painting I featured in my previous entry. I cannot let this pass. If I'm going to paint about something inspired by elements from my country's culture, then it must be presented correctly. Based on several references including a photograph from Wikipedia, it appears that Makabo was holding his Kampilan the wrong way! Here's the corrected version of my painting.


I made the corrections by reversing the blade and the pommel of the sword. Many thanks to a fellow DA user (whose real name I unfortunately do not know yet) for informing me about my mistake. Cheers! :)
