Bontoc chieftain Antonio and the different types of Bontoc spears
Behind Bontoc chieftain Antonio are the different types of Bontoc spears.
He is holding a two barbed "Falfeg". The "Falfeg" was barbed, not for enhanced human or game killing ability but for more spiritual purposes.
Being animist, the Bontoc Igorots believed that the barbs are there to ensnare spirits. The more barbs, made the Falfeg a more effective weapon to fight evil spirits.
