Due to late arrival we could not attend the performance at the WATU PINABETENGAN site, bit went straight to the location of the Yayasan at the Tompaso village.

We went straight to the center area where this super coach was parked:

Since we were the first guests for the second part of the performance we had to wait a bit and used this time to have a look at the shop of souvenirs and textiles that breath the Watu Pinabetengan style, created by my nephew Thomas Sigar.

I was instinctively drawn to the fabric display cases:

The colour combinations are very intriguing and the little figures are copies of inscriptions made by the ancient people on the Pinawetengan stone.

More colour combinations. Wow! I love them all, Bravo Thomas!

Daring colour combinations
