Cesar Buenaventura was a Filipino painter known throughout his home country for his vibrantly colorful and thickly painted depictions of landscapes and people of the Philippines. Buenaventura often depicted farmers plowing fields or fisherman coming back from the sea, focusing on quiet scenes of everyday domestic and agrarian life.
The Nipa hut is a type of stilt house indigenous to the vast majority of lowland Austronesian cultures of the Philippines. It often serves as an icon of Philippine culture or, more specifically, Filipino rural culture.
