Labandera ( Laundry Lady )

-----------------( click image to enlarge )
It's been a while since my last art.... I was so busy doing a lot of things lately plus a job that i've found online so the only time that i can do some blogging is during the weekends.... Anyways, here's another one for yous.... This time it's about the Laundry Lady or Labandera in Filipino....


In some remote towns where the shallow rivers are still alive with crystal clear water from the cool springs and large river channels high up in the mountains, this is a very common sight mostly in the early morning when it' is still cool and free of the baking sun.... The women, mostly housewives gathers by the rocky bank of the river to wash their laundry in a large galvanise pans that we call Batya in filipino language.... Have a great weekend all....! =D
