Photographer's Note

NO...NO...NO!!
these are coconut shells that resemble skulls, nothing more. bao in tagalog, paya in chabacano, bagol in cebuano, etc..

the coconut meat has been extracted from the shells and is turned into copra (dried coconut meat or kernel) which in turn are used to produce cooking oil, soap etc. copra came from the malayalam word kopra.

coconuts are one of so many produce that philippines is known for. coconut farming is common all over the archipelago- from aparri to jolo, so to speak.

wealthy filipinos own vast plantation of the same.
