Description
English: Titled “Menstrual Period in Political History”, this controversial mixed media artwork in 2005 by Filipino multimedia artist Danny C. Sillada, is a political satire on the cyclical political crisis and corruption in the Philippine government. The vaginal form is carved on a metamorphic rock and painted with red, blue and yellow to signify the Philippine flag. The size is 60 × 48".

"This controversial mixed media piece (an attempt was made to destroy it at the height of the “Hello Garci” political scandal) reflects the artist’s critical stance toward the power struggles that “are putting our country into pit.”" (Ong, Village Voice, pp.12)

"Blue, red, and yellow – the colors of the Philippine flag – fill his canvasses. He alludes a woman’s menstrual period to the country’s cyclic political turmoil, and he sprinkles it with satirical images to boot." (Excerpted from The Manila Times, June 27, 2006)
