Aba-Abo: Likha


The feeling of hope which stems from death, eventually becomes beautiful. We typically perceive death as the end of everything but with this idea that Filipinos believe in, we see more of life through reincarnation. We see hope and freedom that a moth or a butterfly holds and symbolizes. We Filipinos are hopeful for freedom and for a beautiful future that awaits us.
