|Pirena, the sangre who possesses the power / gem of fire|
A few days ago, while my colleagues and I were doing a round of TV guesting in GMA Network for a campaign we are running, we saw these fascinating displays that really caught our attention. They are the statues / costumes of the much loved lead characters of Encantadia. And I think GMA did the right thing to immortalize and celebrate the cultural contribution of the said creation.

Encantadia is a fantasy series that primarily depicted the story of four sangres (princess fairies) who took care of the earth gems (hiyas) - air, fire, water and land and how they faced the battles, magic and twists that took place as they struggled to keep the balance of the four stones and protect their kingdom (called Encantadia) against evil forces.

|Danaya, the sangre who possesses the gem / power of land|
Definitely, the statues / costume displays were unveiled a long time ago (and we are just not aware of it) but nevertheless they were indeed a scene stealer to us and we were in unison in opinion that it's among the finest creations in Philippine TV because of its unique plot, grand scale production and undeniable mass influence.
And we all wished to see it again in the future (GMA plugged in 2010 that the series will have a come back but for some undisclosed reasons, it did not materialize). Film could be a great idea too! =) Paging GMA Network! =)
P.S. And as bonus, they also featured a display of the classic Pinay superhero Darna.
