The Golden Tara

This treasure discovered in Mindanao is indeed evidence that pre-colonial history of the Philippines includes a civilization that wasn't isolated from the rest of Southeast Asia.  A civilization with rich traditions and history that is related to Hindu and Islamic empires throughout Southeast Asia.  The Golden Bodhisattva Tara of the Philippines is in the Field Museum of Chicago today.
