About the Piece
To execute the subject in what we generally know of as stained glass, but which Dumlao more humbly called “sculptured glass.” He created his sarimanok using crushed or pounded varicolored glass from discarded beverage and medicine bottles, which were then fortified with polymer in wrought-iron frame.
