Description

Circa 7000-2500 years ago

Funerary treasures and secondary burial vessels were discovered in the cave complex in Lipuun Point, Palawan. Jar burial is one of many burial practices used by early inhabitants. The Manunggul Jar, featuring the boat of the dead on its lid, illustrates an early belief in the afterlife. A miniature version of this National Cultural Treasure is visible in this diorama.
