Banaue wood carver

I always see this wood carver whenever I am in Banaue. He sits silently in his small-makeshift art studio/store, working on his pieces, focused, naive of what's going on the outside world. He sells his masterpieces to tourists and visitors. I approached quietly, not wanting to disturb his deep state of concentration, and took this snap.
