The statues are mad of wood, even though they don’t look like it as they have been painted over and varnished into a shiny platic-like sheen. The statues and wood sculptures depict the life of the Igorot tribe, the native inhabitants of Baguio. Today not all of the sculpture on the steps are those of Igorots - there are also those of famous Philippine political figures, such as past presidents, there are also sculpture of sleeping guards and some animals. The balance found in the sculptures can be seen obviously in the way that each sculpture has complete body parts. . (Photo by John S Lander/LightRocket via Getty Images)
