Two different nations, one love and passion for art

Maestro Luca Vezzaro and the team of Four Legged Tiles embarked on an arduous journey to the Kalinga province to present a handcrafted, hand-carved, and hand-painted wooden mosaic masterpiece to Apo Whang-Od, a treasured national artist also known as the "Ink Queen". The artwork was created in honor of Apo Whang-Od's contribution to the world of art.

The local government of Kalinga, including Honorable Governor James Edduba, Honorable Congressman Allen Jesse C. Mangaoang, and Ms. Lorraine Ngao-i of the Tourism Office, welcomed Maestro Luca and his team with open arms during a ceremony held on May 8, 2023. The government officials received the artwork on behalf of Apo Whang-Od and honored Maestro Luca with a plaque of recognition and community token.
