Palo Sebo

I drew this when I was in grade school. Third grade I think. (cir 1993). I used a oil pastel here and etched some parts using a plastic fork. (I loved doing that when I was little)

The scene in the picture is Palo Sebo. A Filipino Game

This game is played by boys during a town fiesta or on special occasions.
Long and straight bamboo poles are greased and polished to make them smooth and slippery. Before they are set upright, a small bag containing the prize is tied at the end of every pole. It usually contains money or toys.

The contestants try to climb the poles to secure the prizes. Anyone who fails to reach the top is disqualified. The winner is the one who succeeds in reaching and untying the prize.
