Story behind the Artwork:

Capturing a moment of her amazing experience when the artist had a rare opportunity to be a Tourist in her own region. Cebu, which is known for its Guitar Industry in Lapu-Lapu City started when the Spanish friars assigned in Cebu needed to repair the guitars they were using. Instead of waiting for the guitars to arrive from Mexico, they commissioned the townspeople of Opon village in Mactan Island to make new guitars and repair the existing guitars they had; thus began the guitar industry in Cebu.
