He’s also done his research, which has resulted in the addition of another kalasagkalasag design: The shield with the ‘stem’ at the top is apparently the design used in the precolonial Visayas, while the ones we see more often such as those used in the Amaya TV seriesAmaya TV series are mostly BagoboBagobo and other Mindanao-originated designs.
