In Dumaguete City, a quiet university town in Central Visayas, Philippines, there lives a guy with no hands who can create intricate small-scale models of the tricycle, the most common mode of public transportation in the city and nearby towns.
According to popular local photographer Denniz Futalan, this guy was trained by his boss, the owner of Ct Limit Digital Electronic Service Center, to create these intricate pieces – and as you can see in the photos below, he has truly mastered the art of crafting these small but grand masterpieces!
Considering that this guy did not have hands at all, we could only imagine how difficult it is for him to create these small pieces as each one surely requires nimble fingers yet he managed to craft these awesome pieces nonetheless.
This only goes to show that having a handicap should not be an excuse for us not to do something good with our lives – because this guy with no hands could do something that many people with hands could not even try to make!
If you’re interested with these creative miniature or little “pediboxes” as Futalan loves to call the trikes, you can buy them at the Art Workshop of Susan Canoy at the Second Level (near the cinemas) of Robinsons Place Dumaguete or at Ct Limit Digital Electronic Service Center located at the corner of San Jose and Maria Cristina Streets in Dumaguete City.
Prices vary, depending on design and size but you can buy the small ones at Php500 ($10.70) a piece or have a larger one customized at Php1800 ($38.60).
