Fenton and his crew were filming yesterday in Marikina, the shoe capital of The Philippines. The city features some fine civic statuary – like the one at top center, featuring a shoemaker – and some that is really bizarre – like the one at top right and in the detail above, that looks like Stephen Hawking giving an enema to a monkey boy (it could happen). Simon Kerslake, a producer in the WOW UK office, did some enquiring into the latter sculpture and was told the man is holding a tabor, a traditional Filippino vessel used for personal showering. And the man is purported to be the boy’s grandfather, washing his grandson in the traditional manner. Of course, one man’s tradition, is another man’s repressed memory. Philippenis anyone?
