I have been doing some more research on the Sagada hanging coffin's and if there are any myths of the filipino's that could attribute them to such
And guess what mate? I have found one.
It could be that the fillipino's buried their dead up there on the cliff's as they wanted the dead to stay out of the way of the ASWANGS.
Aswangs are a combination of a witch and vampire in the Phillipines.
Aswangs are a common name for shapeshifters, demons, monsters and other mystical creature's.
Most Aswangs tales involve's female's as the attackers.
And the another name for a Aswangs is a BAL-BAL.
BAL-BAL are a demon that EATS THE DEAD.
The BAL-BAL after eating the dead will fill the coffin of the dead up with banana trunks.
So i think that these tales are the reason behind the hanging coffins.
So there is method to our madness Cookie.
IS this why these coffins were placed on these cliff's.
What are your thoughts on this??
