I have seen this when I was in college during a counseling visit to St. Theresita's High School. Alternately, it is called the "Santa Claus" or sometimes the "Igorot" face.
During a project visit to Kapangan, we dropped by the municipal hall to have a courtesy call to the mayor. While waiting, I looked around and recognized the bust across the canyons and gorges. With my 300mm lens, I zoomed in and captured it for the first time.
Seeing this for the second time makes me reminisce about college and the fun we have during our practicum on counseling, and picture-taking on the side. But most of all, witnessing this wonderful work of nature is truly a gift from God.
Doing further research, it is in fact one of the natural attractions of Kapangan, Benguet, which is found in Dakiwagan Mountain in Barangay Balakbak.
