Maria Makiling, sometimes spelled Mariang Makiling, in Philippine Mythology, is a diwata or lambana (fairy or forest nymph) associated with Mount Makiling in Laguna, Philippines. She is the most widely known diwata in Philippine Mythology
You can see her mountain from our house back home.

Hey guys! This is the title page of a 6 page mini-comic for the awesome Amanda Scurti's new fantasy Earth-themed anthology TERRESTRIAL. It’s loosely based off the Filipino mythological figure, Mariang Sinukuan. I’ve been wanting to do something with her for awhile, so I was really excited about the anthology’s theme. You can pre-order it here, before it debuts at SPX in September. Check out all the other wonderful contributors!! It’s a mind-blowing list. Thank you again Amanda for inviting me. :)
