This gallery features collections on rice from the NMP and Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) evoking its significance in the Filipino culture, in terms of science, traditional knowledge and heritage systems. It also aims to support the country’s continuing campaign for the Philippines to be self-reliant on rice through responsible rice consumption. It features different types of bulul (granary idol) which are used in rituals associated with rice production and other material cultures used in planting, harvesting, processing, and storing rice.
We would like to here it from you!
