Anting-Anting are an important part of Filipino Culture. These amulets are talismans of protection designed to protect the wearer from home and even bring them love and wealth. They are a good luck symbol that brings together Catholic iconography with more traditional, local beliefs. The talismans may be a foreign idea to many French viewers, but the ideas and symbols are not. That is why the new show at the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris is so interesting.
This show – Anting-Anting: The Secret Soul of The Filipino – brings some of these interesting items together in a fascinating collection. It offers the chance for us to look at the craftsmanship of the pieces, but also to learn some of the stories behind them.
The exhibition begins on the 12th of March and runs until the 26th of May. It is an unusual cultural exhibit that may surprise and educate. Don’t miss out.
