This painting is another example of how the environment of the Filipinos often influences her art. The piece “Takot ka ba, hindi duwag” expresses the feeling of confusion as people interact with a child full of wonder engaging with what are supposedly man’s toys in different manners. The artist intends to convey the society’s brutal mentality to masculinity that potentially harms childhood mental development as children are greatly misunderstood.
