this is a Christmas structure in Naawan, a lively town in Misamis Oriental in the Philippines. it depicts a mosque (crescent) and a church (cross), with two hands reaching out to each other and holding the whole world.


contrary to what the Philippine media has been reporting, there is actually peaceful coexistence among Muslims and Christians in most parts of Mindanao. while there have been numerous bombings in the past, these disturbances happened only in isolated areas in the region.
