Entry number 16, titled as the "Siyuhom" mask got 2,081 likes
• The name of the mask, Siyuhom, symbolizes the positive views of each bacolodnon. The word "yuhom" in Hiligaynon dialect means smile. It shows that despite of the different challenges in life, Negrenses still manage to wear a smile. With that in mind, the artist came up to combine violet and white as the main colors of the mask. Violet symbolizes the lonely side of a person and having white as its complementing color resulted to show elegance, full of life and reflects the annually celebrated MassKara Festival.
