Kamaricutan is also a galeri for a local artist with impressive paintings (all depicting the Palawan-Calamian culture and life) and equally impressive sculpture and artwork. Anything and everything in Kamaricutan has art embedded in it, and I took the liberty to take a photo of the men's WC door, which depicts the word man in a local dialect. The toilets inside are work of art themselves.
One evening that our company of four were enjoying our drinks and music in Kamaricutan, my eyes fell on a Polynesian didgeridoo (the long bamboo-made aboriginal musical instrument), which was so beautifully decorated that I felt a compelling desire to buy it. Being about 5'5" long and having to travel across the rest of Palawan, as well as taking numerous flights (Palawan-Manilla, Manilla-Athens via Dubai, Athens-Manchester, where it now rests eventually intact) my wife cursed me for weeks on end. But I am the proud owner of a piece of art from the most impressive Palawan artist!
