The “Higantes” Festival is held annually in Angono town in the Philippines, where hundreds of giant papier-mâché puppets are paraded, representing how the common people mocked the land owners during the Spanish colonial rule.

Apart from exemplifying the artistic talent of the people of Angono, the festival also places a strong emphasis on the importance of recycling material and consequently, conserving the environment. (Photos by Jire Carreon)
