These are “bulols” or representations of rice granary gods which the highland peoples revered and worshiped. As with most people, planting and harvesting grain is a vital part of survival and is usually considered sacred accorded with rituals and superstitions. I saw this is in the Bencab Museum which houses one of the most extensive collections of Philippine artifacts and is a must-see if you happen to be up in Baguio City.
